TV Equals: "It’s fair to say at this point that Ripper Street has gone in a different direction than its prior two seasons. The stories used to be heavy with historical events and facts that were often quite complex. I enjoyed research the events depicted and figuring out what had really happened and why it was significant to history. The historical storytelling has fallen by the wayside and been replaced by a more character-driven plot that has largely centered around Edmund Reid reuniting with his formerly presumed dead daughter. It’s a different approach and I miss the historical aspect, but it’s still an enjoyable show that I feel a lot of people are missing out on."
