- Ripper Street.
Not a fan of the ex-Spooks lead blokey – would have preferred someone like Philip Glenister, i.e. a more geezer-like character. But he’s grown on me as has the series.
Thinking about it I probably enjoy the use of language more than anything else. Plus I’m always a sucker for Victoriana.Posted 5 years agobigblokeMember
only complaint is i have to really pay atention to the dialogue due to its use of the period language and it being so quiet its easy to miss key moments/clues.
Maybe stick to something on ITV then…
Didnt say i didnt like it, just i have to really pay attention or i miss a key point, like the poison references…but thanks for insulting me.Posted 5 years agopictonroadSubscriber
I was exactly the same, loved the first episode but really struggled to hear them. Ran the next episodes through the external speakers on the DVD/pseudo surround system and suddenly it made sense.
I assume it has been mastered for the subsequent DVD sales and to my ears is inpenetrable on my standard tv speakers.
I think its excellent too, love the language and cod Victorian Environment.Posted 5 years agodbSubscriber
Not one comment about Police Brutality and cover ups!
This is meant to be STW – you should all be ashamed of yourselves!
We need a public enquiry into this documentary as I’m sure that City of London Police inspector was altering his notebook, and the Police and Prostitutes are too friendly as well.

Great performance from Jerome Flynn last week and Iain Glen is always mustard in whatever he appears in.
Looking forward to tonight’s installment.
Hopefully it’s been successful enough to get another series. The DVD / Blu-Ray is out on 18th of this month for those interested.Posted 5 years ago
