A step ahead of other police dramas
7 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was a drama that refused to allow you any easy entertainment, had you quite disorientated at regular intervals, made 'minor' dramatic events absolutely absorbing, and was transfixing from the start nearly to the finish, which I felt slackened off a bit. There are hardly any clear moral rights and wrongs. The actors are mostly completely amateur, but obviously brilliantly schooled by the producers/director in how to be realistic. Just every so often the BBC can come with work such as this, like 'Bodies' which make standard police/hospital/etc. dramas seem absurdly unreal by comparison. I came out of these programmes feeling genuinely stirred, and, as if I'd really been involved in something.
