Series 3 of RIPPER STREET comes to a close tonight on Amazon in the UK for whatever unknown portion of the citizenry watches things on Amazon streaming. Available at 9 PM local time.
We’ve been hesitant to post screenshots and whatnot this season due to our uncertainty about how many people are actually watching this round as opposed to the future BBC One and BBC America runs. So we’ll have more to show you in the new year.
We’ve been pretty delinquent in our Adam-related duties here at the Apple. We’re planning to do more of a push when Series 3 of Ripper Street appears on the tube instead of just on the magic internet machine, but, still, we’re a tad behind. These two episodes are already available for streaming on Amazon in the UK.
Completely pointless post, but we just think Adam looks cute and eyebrowlicious in this behind the scenes snapshot of the cast doing the rounds for some radio interviews a couple weeks ago. So, thanks to Darcylicious for this one.
The Jerome Flynn tumblr site known as jeromeifyouwantto has an embedded radio interview with transatlantic fun couple Flynn and our boy Adam. We can’t figure out how to steal it, so check it out on over there.
Or at least as good as it ever was, suggesting the show’s move to Amazon is going to pay off nicely. Whether the abbreviated episodes other outlets will be airing later will suffer in comparison remains to be seen, but it certainly seems like there’s reasons for fans to hop on to the online streaming train sooner rather than later. UK fans, anyway. US fans are on their own.
“This opener was both explosive and haunting. But the producers have not used up all their ammunition: by the end of the second episode, a tangled web of dark secrets were still waiting to be discovered. If the energy and subtlety of these first two episodes is maintained, this series will delight audiences even more than the last.” – Anna Leszkiewicz, The Telegraph
“… Ripper Street remains a beautifully made, superbly cast drama with a fantastic trio of leads.” – Alex Fletcher, Digital Spy
“(I)t’s bigger and better than ever. Have no doubts about it – Amazon and everyone involved have delivered exactly what fans wanted. This is not only the resurrection of Ripper Street but the resurgence, free from the shackles of traditional network rating worries, instead focusing on delivering the best quality across the board. If the double-bill that this third series launches with is anything to go by then this could be the best series yet. … Adam Rothenberg (Captain Jackson) coming in and stealing the show regularly with some classic dialogue. Ripper Street, it’s a pleasure to have you back in all your disgusting glory.” – David Bedwell, DIY Magazine
“… the budgets this series clearly top anything the show’s original broadcaster could match. The major event which draws the main characters back together in episode one is nothing short of spectacular. It all feels a little bit bigger, certainly in ambition. With its unexpected revival, Ripper Street has grown broader shoulders and a more confident gait, while retaining the stillness that made it so impressive in the first place. – Julia Raeside, The Guardian
Leading into the Series 3 premiere, Harry Guerin at RTÉ brought fortha group interview with Adam, Matthew Macfadyen and Jerome Flynn. One of Adam’s quotes we used elsewhere, but we wanted to share his thoughts on a couple of other topics in a separate piece.
Harry Guerin: How did you feel about the cancellation and subsequent fan campaign to bring the show back?
Adam Rothenberg: They cancelled it and then there were whispers [it could come back]. I was in a tough spot because I was in LA and I had to look for work, but I started to sort of mess up my auditions! I was like, ‘I can’t in good conscience tell my agent I’m not going out for anything, but I can suck…’ That I’m good at!
