Favorite Semi-Fictional Characters 4/∞: Edmund Reid as portrayed by Matthew Macfadyen (Ripper Street)

You’ve seen Hampton. The promenade, the parasols, the polite conversation amidst the teacups. There is nothing of it that breathes. There is nothing of it that is alive and quick and stinking and bright. Whitechapel is life in all its wild and rotten splendor. Beside it, the rest of the world seems a tomb.

So…seeing as I’m in America, I won’t be able to view Ripper Street at the same time as most of my followers. I’m still going to keep up with it and brave myself for spoilers, as I did last time, but I just wanted to let you all know, that if you want me to fangirl over some things, I may not be able to at this moment. And HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MATTHEW! Our dear Inspector Reid, is 39 today!
