The third season of none-more-black TV drama Ripper Street is currently filming in Dublin’s Clancy Barracks and RTÉ TEN spent a day on the set.
Clips from the new season, which takes place four years after season two, suggest that things are even darker and more complex in Victorian London…
According to Digital Spy:
Prime customers will be able to watch the new extended episodes from late 2014, with the show being cut down to fit an hour-slot when it airs on BBC One in 2015.
"We don’t have a 60-minute slot to fill at 9pm," explained Chris Bird - Amazon Instant Video Film & TV Strategy Director.
"So we said to Richard [Warlow, series creator], ‘We want you to write this season completely unencumbered. If you want to write a 70-minute episode, write a 70-minute episode’.
The festival runs from August 21 - Sept 1
