Ripper Street: Possible Major Spoilers about Det Reid

According to the Daily Mail

Matthew Macfadyen is set to kill off his Ripper Street character – so he can become a house-husband. 

With his wife Keeley Hawes filming a three-part TV adaptation of J. K. Rowling’s novel The Casual Vacancy, Matthew, 39, wants his role as Detective Inspector Edmund Reid in Ripper Street to end.


Friends say he will spend more time with the couple’s children – Maggie, ten, Ralph, eight, and Keeley’s 14-year-old son Myles.

A pal says: ‘Matthew asked producers for his character to be killed off. He’s leaving on amicable terms.

'He’s been away filming a lot and he and Keeley take their acting roles in turn so the other can look after the kids.’

"the third series promises to be an even more vivid, sensual and violent drama that explores the lives of those who have seen the worst of humankind, but who nonetheless struggle each day to bring law to the lawless."

Macfadyen said: “Delighted and excited to be back for a third series of Ripper. Thank you to Amazon, thank you to our fans who wanted more, and thank you to our wonderful writers and producers for giving us the most thoroughly brilliant, gripping and heart-rending opening episodes."

Ripper Street: Amazon Prime Instant Video will air extended episodes

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'.
