This is just a response to the last review that I can see 'Jimmy Nail's accent' - unbelievable!!! The accent has to travel - if his accent hadn't have been gentrified nobody outside of Geordieland would be able to understand it - is that what you want?
There are many American movies and series which do not take the rest of the world into consideration and shows like Eastenders in Britain are totally incomprehensible to the American ear.
As it is the Geordie accent isn't understandable around Britain.
I remember this series as being hard hitting and well acted with a bad performance by Spender's nemesis the other cop - didn't seem to ring true I remember.
