‘Ripper Street’ Draws 90 Complaints…

Almost 90 viewers complained about the first episode of Irish-English co-production ‘Ripper Street’, Broadcast reports. The first episode, which aired on BBC One on December 30, featured scenes of a sexual nature involving Irish actress Charlene McKenna.

A BBC spokesperson said: “A piece like ‘Ripper Street’ is a strong and gritty series but is clearly signposted, including on-air continuity announcements, to ensure the audience knows what to expect from the show.” The show, which was co-produced by Ireland’s Element Pictures and the UK’s Tiger Aspect and Lookout Point, and filmed in Dublin, broadcasts at 9pm on Sunday nights. The first episode pulled in 6.09m viewers.
