Ripper Street concludes Mondays 9.30pm, BBC2 

What can I expect from this episode?

This melancholic finale will soon squash any sense of euphoria you may feel when Augustus Dove is eventually caught out for his vicious crimes. Of course we accept that some of our heroes must pay the price for their criminal past but this is gloomier than a back alley in Victorian Whitechapel on a foggy night in February. 

Having despatched various characters to the gallows or Dartmoor prison or even further afield, we confusingly jump back and forwards in time. This means Bennet suddenly makes a larger-than-life reappearance from the grave while DI Reid (reunited with that awful bowler hat) pursues the Ripper case. But actually he seems to spend most of his time morosely nursing a drink. 

It’s a proper series ending albeit the antithesis of a “happy ever after” one and they say there won’t be any more Ripper Streets. But we’ve heard that before. Maybe, like Bennet in this episode, it will be resurrected in the future.
