Critic Reviews for Ripper Street: Season 2

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Resolution, in standard Ripper Street fashion, comes with ambivalence. It also does little to sort out Reid's own complicated life. But its well-turned story should keep viewers tuned in.

More proof that the Brits do detective stories better than we Yanks.

This was a solid episode that wove together historical fact with the drama we expect from Ripper Street.

For me, the episode brings back what worked best for the last series, the script, camerawork and editing are used concisely to create an engaging tale.

It's testament to the richness of Ripper Street's police-procedural-meets-costume-drama premise, not to mention the seediness of the Victorian East End, that the writers are yet to run out of new ideas for gruesome crime plots.
