BBC America’s New ‘Ripper Street’ Trailer Reveals Jack Was Only The Beginning [Video]

BBC America has released a trailer for Ripper Street, the newest member of their Dramaville lineup. The crime drama is set in 1889 London, and will focus on the famous H Division of London’s police force as they attempt to keep the peace in the East End after Jack the Ripper’s grisly murders. The gritty trailer showcases the dark crimes the officers will be facing as they live under the constant threat of the Ripper’s possible return.
