I was saddened to learn that Ripper Street has been cancelled.

Period crime drama Ripper Street has been axed by the BBC after it failed to pull in a big enough audience.

The occasionally grisly Victorian-era show will end when the second series winds up in just under a fortnight on BBC One.

I can’t help but think that the show could have made it given more time.
