Watch a Trailer for BBC America’s Victorian Cop Show Ripper Street

If Copper didn't scratch your 1800s police itch, BBC America is back at it with Ripper Street, set in London following Jack the Ripper's reign. Mustaches, vests, menacing looks, tiny eyeglasses, sage prostitutes, something something protecting people — pick any three of these and you've got yourself a scene on an old-timey cop show! (And most episodes of Boardwalk Empire.) Ripper Street premieres January 19.
