About the Show
Once again starring Matthew Macfadyen as Detective Inspector Reid, Jerome Flynn as the newly promoted Detective Inspector Bennet Drake, Adam Rothenberg as Captain Homer Jackson, MyAnna Buring as Long Susan, the third series promises to be an ever more vivid and sensual descent into the lives of the men and women who must live on those violent streets.
The eight episode third series picks up in 1894, four years after the culmination of series two, years in which Reid, Drake, Jackson and Long Susan have been split and divided by those events. As this series begins, however, the violent heist of a goods train sets off a cataclysmic chain reaction that is to return them to each other’s side, before spiralling uncontrollably toward a conclusion that will leave them changed forever.
