Ripper Street To Feature A Fan Of Holmes

I think that it is safe to say that Ripper Street can be classed as "historical fiction," considering how much (and well) the writers incorporate real events into the fiction of H Division. For instance, the roles of persons real like Joseph Merrick or Jane Cobden in series 2. And it seems that the third series of the programme, given new life thanks to an agreement between the BBC, Tiger Aspect, and Amazon Prime, will continue this trend.

Currently filming new episodes in Dublin, the third series will feature an appearance by historical figure Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, the first woman in England to be qualified as a doctor. The size of the role is unknown, but she will be played by Louise Brealey, better known as Sherlock's Molly Hooper. As filming progresses, no doubt we will discover more of what the third series will have in store for us, ahead of the presumed release date of later this year. But this is an excellent start.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
