The BBC’s popular drama series Ripper Street, set in Victorian London in the wake of the Ripper murders is set to return to BBC One on the 31st of July. Starring Matthew Macfayden, Jerome Flynn, Adam Rothenberg and Myanna Buring the series was originally set to be axed by the BBC in 2014 after low viewing figures. However after a unique deal with Amazon , after fans campaigned for the series to be revived, the series returned, albeit to computer screens last year. The episodes will not be exactly as seen on Amazon Instant Video however; 15 minutes have been cut from each episode to make them easier to broadcast. Ripper Street return to BBC One on Friday the 31st of July for eight episodes.
