He told PA: "It's fantastic to begin shooting in Dublin again for the second series of Ripper Street - and to be reunited with much of the wonderful cast and crew from last year. Also to be reunited with my bowler hat - I'd missed it.

"The show's creator Richard Warlow has given us two wonderful, strange and unsettling opening episodes, teeming with the fierce and fragile life of Victorian Whitechapel."

The second series of the drama will see events taking place in 1890, where the crime-fighting team will struggle against corruption within their own police force.

Macfadyen's co-stars Jerome Flynn and Adam Rothenberg return to their roles for the new series and will be joined by Joseph Mawle, who will play corrupt Inspector Jebediah Shine.

The second series of Ripper Street will air in 2014.
