The third series of Ripper Street, which arrived at BBC1 this month after a run round the online market with co-sponsor Amazon Prime Instant Video, is winning the 9pm slot for the network - but then, it is up against BBQ Champ on ITV.

The BBC decided first to drop the series, after its ratings for Series 2 fell below 5m, then showed renewed interest once Amazon came in with funding. The first two episodes of the current series have returned figures of 3.7m and 3.4m. This is against a slot average for the past twelve months of 3.9m. Amazon have announced that there will be a Series 4 and a Series 5 - have the BBC already committed ?
