Ripper Street
Available on Peacock
Ripper Street, a BBC mini-series set a few months after the famous -- and never solved -- Jack the Ripper murders, stars Matthew Macfadyen as Inspector Edmund Reid, the detective in charge of a new series of murders which police fear may be linked to the Ripper murders. Aiding Reid in his task is Captain Homer Jackson (Adam Rothenberg), a surgeon and former Pinkerton detective who has a dark secret in his past, and brothel madam Long Susan (MyAnna Buring). Meanwhile, crusading and somewhat unethical reporter Fred Best (David Dawson) is just waiting for Reid to trip up.
