Ripper Street to be Axed

I know I have occasionally made fun of the fact that to me DI Reid looks spookily like Sergeant Bung (Harry H. Corbett in Carry on Screaming), but it's been a series that has progressively improved over time and is one of the most original and interesting dramas on the BBC. Its historical accuracy might be more than a bit wayward and the prostitutes in it are far better looking and much more glamorous than their true life counterparts would have been back in the day, but it has a vitality about it which is enjoyable to watch - and you never really know where each story is going to go.

There is a petition up to try and persuade the beeb to change its mind, which is at least worth a try.
