TORONTO, Dec. 13, 2012 /CNW/ - Suspense. Mystery. Murder. Following the 
gruesome aftermath of history's most notorious serial killer, Jack The Ripper, 
the new eight-episode drama RIPPER STREET joins SPACE's roster of phenomenal 
programming beginning Saturday, Jan. 19 at 9 p.m. ET. Set in the East End of 
London as it moves into the last decade of the 19(th) century, RIPPER STREET 
stars BAFTA Award-winner Matthew Macfadyen (The Three Musketeers, Pride & 
Prejudice) as Inspector Edmund Reid, the leader of H Division police precinct, 
which is charged with maintaining order in the blood-stained London streets. 
It's April 1889, six months since the last Jack The Ripper killing, and East 
London is emerging into a fragile peace, hopeful that the killer's reign of 
terror might at last have run its course. Haunted by the failure to catch 
London's most evil killer, forward-thinking detective Inspector Edmund Reid 
(Macfadyen) is now in charge of H Division, based in the toughest district of 
Whitechapel. Accompanied by loyal local brawn including Detective Sergeant 
Bennett Drake (Jerome Flynn, GAME OF THRONES), and U.S. Army surgeon and 
one-time Pinkerton detective Captain Homer Jackson (Adam Rothenberg, THE EX 
LIST), Reid seeks to bring justice to a world that is forever on the brink of

The men of H Division hunted a maniac and failed to find him. Responsible for 
policing a relatively small area of just 1¼ square miles, into that space was 
packed some 67,000 people - a seething, bustling mass of the poor and 
dispossessed. RIPPER STREET is a fictionalized trek into the heart of a London 
borough living in the aftermath of the forever anonymous killer, and the 
dedicated policemen for whom life, and crime, go on. 
In the premiere episode of RIPPER STREET, "I Need Light," a young woman is 
found brutally murdered with the hallmark signs of the Ripper upon her. 
One-time H Division boss Chief Inspector Frederick Abberline (Clive Russell, 
CORONATION STREET) believes it is the return of Jack The Ripper, but Detective 
Reid suspects a different evil is at work. 
RIPPER STREET also stars Myanna Buring (The Twilight Saga) and David Dawson 
(Secret Diary of a Call GirL), and is produced for the BBC by Tiger Aspect 
Productions, Lookout Point, and BBC AMERICA. Executive Producers are Greg 
Brenman (ROBIN HOOD), and Will Gould (MURPHY'S LAW) at Tiger Aspect, and Simon 
Vaughan (COMBAT HOSPITAL) at Lookout Point. RIPPER STREET is distributed by 
BBC Worldwide.
