The first images (see below) of Hollywood actor David Costabile’s (Low Winter Sun, Suits) upcoming appearance on BBC One’s period drama series Ripper Street have been released. Costabile co-stars in the two-part series finale (scheduled to air on Monday December 9th and Monday December 16th) as Daniel Judge, Captain Homer Jackson’s brother.
Created by Richard Warlow, Ripper Street is a period drama set in the East End of London in 1889, during the aftermath of the “Ripper” murders. The series follows H Division, the police precinct from hell which is charged with keeping order in the chaotic streets of Whitechapel. H Division was responsible for policing a relatively small area of just 1¼ square miles, yet into that space were packed some 67,000 people; a seething, bustling mass of the poor and dispossessed. Ripper Street is produced by Tiger Aspect Productions & Lookout Point and stars Matthew Macfadyen as Detective Inspector Edmund Reid, Jerome Flynn as Detective Sergeant Bennett Drake and Adam Rothenberg and Captain Homer Jackson. The series will not be returning for a third season following BBC One’s decision to cancel the series, citing dwindling ratings as the cause.
