Ripper Street - Series 2: Matthew Macfadyen Interview (via BBC Media Centre)
[Spoilers within]:
Where do we pick up with Reid in season two?
When we pick up with Reid he’s no longer with his wife, who has left home, and the audience 
discovers why during the first episode. They had a very traumatic end to the first series and he’d given her false hope that he’d found their missing daughter. It turned out it wasn’t her and so that was pretty hard for them both and their marriage dissolved. Anyway, he’s on his own and his house is a 
mess. He sleeps at the office in Leman Street most nights and he’s in quite a lonely and dark place but as always he throws himself into his work and that’s his constant salvation.

It’s based on cracking scripts by Amy Holden Jones, and the first two episodes will be directed by Simon Curtis. The network wants The Black Box to match the brilliant, edgy dramas on cable TV such as Breaking Bad, Homeland and The Walking Dead. Vanessa Redgrave will also star as Reilly’s therapist, David Ajala will play her boyfriend and Laura Fraser her sister-in-law.
