These are great, Domino! The Ripper Street sets are incredible, it's hard to believe that it's not a real place! I love the Brown Bear. I'd love to go for a drink there! That scene with Flight is really funny. I also love the Tenter Street house but I'm not sure that Flight has been there (?) All the street scenes are amazing too - it's the attention to detail, the adverts on the walls, the horse poo. I always think of the telegraph room at the police stationas Flight's place.

Great pics, domino....fabulous sets!  Although I must admit that the outdoor scenes are more evocative for me because they are somehow more from another era - there is something very familiar about the interior of a Victorian pub, or even house.....and for that reason I think that the police station sets are probably my favourites - specifically the 'dead room'.  Not that I frequent police stations very often....but they certainly don't look like that any more!  I agree with Rosie about the telegraph room feeling like Flight's place, in much the same way as the 'dead room' is Jackson's....

So well said Rosie, the sets are incredible, coupled with the costumes it truly is like being transported in time. Yes the telegraph room (or was it more an 'area'?) is very symbolically linked to Flight....always assigned to office based work and telegraph duties.. and in the end directly linked to the events leading to revelations of his secrets.

Glad you enjoyed them IthacaSL, do you have a fave?

Fifi as I was doing this I was not sure if the outdoor sets are traditionally called 'sets'? but absolutely agree with you.. some of my favourite scenes are the outdoors, although we should also mention the incredible VFX that add to the outdoor sets. Do you have a favourite outdoor setting for Flight?

The museum is amazing too. It really reminds me of the museum in Ipswich which was built in Victorian times.

I think there might be a sign which says telegraph room above the door - not sure if you see the sign in series 1 or 2 though. When I watch series 1 again it feels a bit strange seeing Hobbs in there!

I love the way the outdoor scenes are quite disorientating - you can never quite get a grasp of where everything is in connection with anything else, particularly all those dark, mysterious alleyways. There always seems to be something dubious going on there.

Looking at that picture of Evelyn and Flight (as Bertrand) on the bed, I'm trying to work out exactly where on each other's body they are kissing, because it doesn't look like on the lips! Flight's face almost looks like it's in Evelyn's armpit!

The museum is stunning... the screencaps I have used don't really do it any justice.

I will have to look out for that sign Rosie! thank you for saying

Those alleyways are fabulous... incredibly evocative.... love the old posters on the walls too.

reminds me of the scenes Flight has in RS2 ep 7....

and ep 8...

I really want an advertising poster for the Oman Bakery which is one of the posters you often see in the exterior/alley scenes. I love the old typography.

Those scenes in episode 7 now make me feel sad because that is really the start of where things begin to go very wrong for Flight. I feel so sorry for him when he realises he is powerless to arrest Werner. I do have to shout at the tv now - "No Flight, don't be silly"- when he buys the gun in episode 8.

I think the sign above the telegraph room might be in series 1 - I remember calling it the telegraph room in my first fan fic and then wondering if it really was called that - I subsequently watched series 1 again and remember seeing the sign and being reassured that I had called it the right thing in my writing.

Absolutely, the props are as magnificant as the sets!

my fave props of Flight's are his pocket watch and chain (or is that costume?)

and this:

Fave outdoor sets with Flight are the front of H-Division, of which Damien posted this pic during filming

ripperstreetset27.jpg

 

and where this happened

 

ripperstreetset24.jpg

ripperstreetset26.jpg

 

and the street outside the Black Rose...

 What are your favourite outside sets / Flight props?

I love how a small prop can be imbued with so much meaning. The shamrock on Flight's watch chain is a really interesting feature. Flight's thoughts/feelings about Ireland are enigmatic. He almost tries to 'disguise' his Irishness. His accent is quite toned down, his name is not very Irish, he says he knows what side he is on when they have to roust the Whitechapel Irish and his expression when he is listening to the singing at the Black Rose is hard to read - so what is the signifivance

*significance. Typing on my phone is annoying! The glass of lemonade is also an interesting prop too. Why doesn't Flight drink? Is it because of his father, or because he poisoned the gin so he is wary as he knows what can happen, or is he punishing himself over his guilt about the poisoning, or did he used to drink and connects that with when he was a bad man? I also like when Flight is at the front desk writing in Artherton's book from his little notebook.

For Ripper Street, in the streets and alleyways of Whitechapel in the 19th century,  I definately think the exterior spaces count as sets - despite the use of VFX (which, I agree, is excellent) they still need to be dressed as sets much like any other space.....and I guess there is a possiblity that scenes such as the alleyways are filmed in interior sets anyway?

I'm not well known for decision making (!) but if I was forced to choose a favourite exterior set then it would be between the alleyways (which are so evocative) and outside H Division, which creates the impression of it being very much in the heart of the community it serves.  It is where Flight defends Merrick, where Flight and Reid have their little chat (which I love) about looking out for the interests of the common people, where Drake presents Hinchcliffe's body.....
