Ripper Street cut


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.

    Sad. But not surprising, considering the trashy reality shows that are rating extra high on the Nielsen scale. Honey Boo Boo, Duck Dynasty, that irritating wild man–I could go on and on. Shows where people have to think rarely make the cut. Depressing.

    1. I totally agree. That’s both Ripper Street and Copper that has been dropped.
