BBC America’s ‘Ripper Street’: Check Out the Bloody First Three Minutes of the Premiere
Can’t wait for the series premiere of BBC America’s Ripper Street? Maybe this will help tide you over until Saturday: you can catch the first three minutes of the premiere right now. Set in 1889 England, Ripper Street focuses on the H Division of London’s police force as they try to restore some semblance of order to the streets of Whitechapel in the aftermath of Jack the Ripper’s gruesome murders. That’s not going to be an easy task from the looks of things. Within the series’ opening moments a Victorian-era walking tour of Jack’s old haunts takes a deadly turn before we even hit the two-minute mark.
