    The overarching premise of the 15-episode season cracks and crumbles under the slightest scrutiny.

    Ripper Street is a decent but not especially remarkable thriller about crime solving in Whitechapel immediately following Jack's reign of terror.

    It's just too bad a show paved with such an enticing premise doesn't get a little deeper under your skin.

    CyberGhost I have to respectfully disagree. Everything about this show is fantastic, the characters are what makes the show! I do howeverCyberGhost I have to respectfully disagree. Everything about this show is fantastic, the characters are what makes the show! I do however agree with not really knowing how accurate everything is but you truly care for the characters and you you can truly sense the plight of White Chapel. Love this show, I can't believe their are not going to do a season 3. Can lose some of the "reality show" crap and have really great drama like this and Copper (which they failed to renew).

Better than average, but certainly not on a par with the likes of Sherlock. With Ripper Street, Luther, The Hour and Sherlock, BBC America is perhaps second only to AMC for putting out quality shows.
