Preview – Ripper Street

Matthew Lewis as Thatcher in Ripper Street

Having former Harry Potter star Neville Longbottom as your man on the inside works its magic, as Thatcher (Matthew Lewis) passes on a concrete lead in the hunt for sociopathic killer Nathaniel Dove. Naturally, Assistant Commissioner Augustus Dove – the killer’s brother – is keen to keep him out of the hands of the vengeful Reid (Matthew MacFadyen) and Jackson.

Nathaniel is not the only hunted prey tonight, as Jedediah Shine (Joseph Mawle) also finds leverage in his quest to flush out the fugitive disgraced detective inspector and his sidekick Jackson and former madam Long Susan (MyAnna Buring).

Ripper Street – Monday at 9.00pm on BBC2.
