Ripper Street - Episodes 1.02 & 1.03 - Press Release

Ep 2/8
Sunday 6 January
9.00-10.00pm
BBC ONE

Ernest Manby, a 60-year-old toy maker, is beaten to death for a mysterious brass box and the coins in his pocket.

The Whitechapel Vigilance Committee presents a culprit in the form of 14-year-old Thomas Gower, who refuses to deny the charge. Reid – his conscience challenged by a radical lawyer called Eagles and orphanage Governess Deborah Goren – tests the security of the case.

Meanwhile, Jackson’s drinking and gambling have led to the loss of the pendant that ties him to his American past – a past that he and Long Susan fear will now be exposed. Reid and Drake find themselves besieged at Miss Goren’s orphanage by the rest of Gower’s vicious child gang and their brutal master, Carmichael.

H Division and the independent City of London force are thrown together when the panic surrounding a sudden cholera outbreak leads them to conclude wilful contamination is afoot in both boroughs.

Inspector Sydney Ressler (Patrick Baladi) joins Reid’s team as they scour Whitechapel for clues and connections. Meanwhile, Emily Reid (Amanda Hale) seeks patronage for her charity efforts, unaware of the resistance she will meet. As Jackson’s lab fills with bodies, and with no clear correlation between the victims to be found, the team work against the clock to find some underlying pattern amidst the rising tide of sickness and death.
