Actors L to R Matthew Macfadyen (Det. Insp. Edmund Reid) and Adam Rothenberg (Cpt. Homer Jackson) filming new series of drama Ripper Street at Manchester Town Hall Annex.

Mr Darcy may be behind him but Matthew Macfadyen proved he was still worthy of his heartthrob status while in Manchester filming the BBC’s Ripper Street.

Shooting at Manchester Town Hall, the actor is filming the gritty Victorian crime drama here until Thursday.

Alongside the Anna Karenina actor was Jerome Flynn, one half of 1990s singing duo Robson and Jerome and currently starring as Bronn in the fourth series of Game of Thrones.

Ripper Street was axed at the end of last year after not having the audience the BBC had hoped for.

But thanks to a fans' protest and a sudden ratings boost, the BBC have decided to bring back the costume drama, but it will be shown on Amazon Prime before it makes it to our screens.
