“Whitechapel is still Whitechapel, but they have a phone system – it’s the march of technology,” says Matthew, 41. “Reid comes back, but there’s a different dynamic – Drake is now his superior.”
But there are light-hearted moments, too, says Matthew. “I feel like Ripper Street has always had a lovely balance between being quite witty and funny and being grisly and grim as well,” he muses. “The more confident the show gets, the more they can play with that.”

While Matthew filmed Ripper Street in Dublin, his wife, Line of Duty star Keeley Hawes was shooting hit ITV drama The Durrells out in Corfu. Matthew admits to a twinge of envy.

Matthew: “We’d been filming in a disused hotel somewhere and she was texting me sunny photos from a beach. It looked very uncomfortable. It must have been too hot to work in… no, I was jealous!”

The Guardian

The real strength of Ripper Street, aside from the delicate brilliance of its writing, lies in the sexy Mount Rushmore that is Macfadyen, Flynn and Rothenberg. When they scent blood or danger, or both, the three work in unison, hinging and moving as one, like conjoined triplets. It’s a rare chemistry and a triumph of casting, which has only cemented over the four series. 

Ripper Street S4: Interview with Matthew Macfadyen (Sydney Morning Herald)

Series 4 of Ripper Street will begin airing this Thursday in Australia.  Matthew Macfadyen made several comments about his role in Ripper Street.  Here is a small excerpt:

As for his character, Macfadyen says he is happy  to follow the scripts, which often arrive the night before filming: "I have great faith in the writing of [creator] Richard Warlow. It's refreshing and exciting because you don't know where you are going. The more twists and turns on  Edmund's journey the better for me.

"I do like Edmund, his failings as well as his strong points. He is quite a proud and vain man who can be spectacularly thoughtless about people close to him. But he is also, at heart, a good man who cares very deeply about people who can't help themselves or who are hard done by. After all, people are capable of revolting things but that doesn't necessarily mean they are evil. It might simply be circumstances."
