‘Ripper Street’ Filming Moves to North Great George's Street
23 May 2013 : By Kevin Cronin
'Ripper Street' stunts kick into high gear.
Dublin’s North Great George's Street witnessed dramatic scenes of ‘Ripper Street’ season two filming this week, with one character getting thrown from a window and impaled through the leg on a railing.

By contrast, cast and crew members - including stars Matthew Macfadyen, Jerome Flynn and Adam Rothenberg - were in high spirits, and a crash mat was laid under the scene of the wounded police detective (and uninjured stuntman) left hanging upside down.

Bafta-nominated for Best Drama series earlier this month, ‘Ripper Street’ returned to Clancy Barracks at the end of April for principal photography on its second 8-part series before moving to the Natural History Museum on Merrion Row and other Dublin locations in the weeks since.

The Whitechapel-set crime thriller, set in the aftermath of the Jack the Ripper killings in 1889, will wrap filming in Dublin on 31st August and return to BBC screens in 2014.

Irish cast and crew members credited on ‘Ripper Street’ to date are Monaghan actress Charlene McKenna (Raw, Jump); producer Ed Guiney; make-up artists Sharon Doyle and Eileen Buggy (both IFTA winners at this year’s ceremony); production designer Mark Geraghty (who also won an IFTA for his work on the series); costume designer Lorna Marie Mugan; and editor Helen Chapman.

The plot revolves around the investigations of Detectives Edmund Reid and Bennett Drake as they team up with US Army Captain Homer Jackson in their hunt after copycat serial killers in Whitechapel, London’s East End.

'Ripper Street' is a co-production between Ireland’s Element Pictures and the UK’s Tiger Aspect Productions and Lookout Point.
