Six months after the Ripper's reign, the Whitechapel police fight to bring law to the lawless.
Have you been watching Ripper Street? It's release is somewhat timely to us as we prepare for the next Victoria Steam Exposition (previous years have been encased in palaces of cut-crystal and gleaming brass, this year it's the back-alleys of the 19th century colonial capital which are brought to the fore) so I'm loving the visual experience of the show to draw from.
If you're interested in the Victorian science of Ripper Street, read Vanessa Heggie's post on the Guardian.
