    Have season 1, haven't got to it yet but I'm looking forward to it. "Ripper Street" is another period series from the UK which is well done.

    I've seen Ripper Street ...why do the Brits do this kind of thing so well?
    American stuff looks over-baked.
    The Brits just do a kind of light tap on the dramatics & it has more impact.
    Action sequences are tighter and better staged, too.

    I just watched s01 e01 yesterday. I thought it was pretty interesting... I'll watch a few more episodes. The barmaid/ informant seems like an interesting character.

    Just stumbled on to the 2007 HBO 5-episode series "Five Days." Don't know how I missed it back then but The Brits really do know how to craft these kinds of intense dramas. Ditto BBC's "Broadchurch" also excellent which I see Fox has adapted into a US version "Gracepoint ." The downside is that sometimes you'd welcome on screen translations.

    By the way, this thread is Howard related because lead actor Cillian Murphy ("The Scarecrow" in BATMAN BEGINS) in "Peaky Blinders" once played a cross-dresser in the movie PEACOCK.

    I'd always thought Sam Neil was from Britain originally. He really adds class to this series.

    Also in the 5th episode, Tommy Flanagan of "Sons Of Anarchy" shows up as a right bastard of a villain.
