Ripper Street

What Use Our Work? - S1-E8

Factual error: When reading out the list of the day's crimes, Artherton mentions two "teenaged" girls. Use of this term is not recorded in America until the 1920s and in Britain until the late 1940s. The series is set in 1889 and the speech used by the characters is consistently very much the speech of the time - it has not been updated for modern understanding.

A Last Good Act - S5-E5

Factual error: Chief Inspector Abberline's warrant card is signed by Commissioner Leonard Dunning. No Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police had this name or anything like it.

Season 4 generally

Factual error: A woman who was sentenced to death while pregnant, as Long Susan was, was never hanged. Her sentence was stayed until she gave birth and then always commuted to imprisonment. Most such women were released after only a few years.
