A television series can too often outlive its life expectancy, the natural story that drew the viewer in coming to a stuttering halt and becoming less than the perfect ideal viewing it once was proudly claimed to be. In some cases though what might have been perceived as the final adventures of a much loved character might not be enough, the finale of a person’s life left hanging, stuck in the rounds of congratulations and non-committal farewells. Such was the fate of Martin Shaw’s Inspector George Gently, left dangling after a successful case cracked, there really was a couple of more hurrahs left in the soul but none seemed forth coming.

The fourth episode of the gripping Ripper Street, the evocative The Good of This City, had more than a nod to the Timberlake Wertenbaker play Our Country’s Good. Whereas though no one was being transported halfway around the world to a penal colony that would be the death of most of those that originally were sent there, there was still the utter displeasure in seeing the locals of Whitechapel being compulsory evicted from their homes in the name of progress.
