Character Bio

Rose Erskine photo
A lot has changed in the life of Rose Erskine, who has - in these intervening four years - found fame and success on the music hall stage. A star now and a respectable woman besides, Rose is playing to rapt audiences in Whitechapel and engaged to Edgar Morton, a gentlemen with prospects.

Rose seems to have everything her heart has ever desired, but a regret continues to gnaw at her mind and spoil her happiness. She still hasn’t forsaken her love for Bennet Drake, and - when they are thrown together once more by chance - Rose may struggle to control her feelings.

Rose Erskine Quotes

02x07 - Our Betrayal (1) Season 2 / Episode 7: - Our Betrayal (1)

Rose Erskine: [With Drake during a break from physical labor] You have no wish to speak with me, Bennet. I see that. But I will not be diverted now that I have found you, because I am your true friend. I know that I have been cruel to you in the past. And you must look at me now and see nothing but a reminder of your pain. But I am your friend and I will not desert you. So you go back to your graves and your dosshouses, and you be sure of this: as the day begins and the night ends, you will find me waiting for you. You think you can hide from life, and perhaps another man might, but not such a man as you, Bennet Drake. You believe yourself accursed. You are not. You believe you carry only pain into other people's lives. You do not. Bennet, you brought love into mine, a love that is keener now than ever it was. You are a good man. You are a good man. I will say those words until the day I die. Bennet Drake is the best of men and this life, this world, will not let him sink from its surface.
01x07 - A Man of My Company Season 1 / Episode 7: - A Man of My Company

Rose Erskine: [smiling] So is this the lot for a bobby's wife, then? Never knowing when you're like to come home?
Detective Sergeant Bennet Drake: Yeah, it can be... and as you've said, not long past, it is not much of a life. [his tone hardens] You... you come to me out of fear, Rose, not natural affection. I know I'm not much... but I am worth better than that.
Rose Erskine: Then what is to become of me?
Detective Sergeant Bennet Drake: Your mistress is returned to her house. You can do likewise, if you wish.
Rose Erskine: And if I do not? If I decide to finish with that life?
Detective Sergeant Bennet Drake: Then you must be brave, Rose, and look for another. Now get along with you, girl.
