As a prison riot erupts into violence, Red comes face to face with the ring leader: the man who once held him hostage and nearly drove him mad. But what they don't know is a killer's amongst them, preying on their weaknesses.
DC Anna Travis joins a team on the hunt for a particularly gruesome serial killer. When the latest victim is found and doesn't fit the usual profile of the killer's victims, Travis sets out to prove herself.
The series focused on various murders in the fictional suburban English town of Middleford. The crimes are solved by two female police detectives, Inspector Kate Ashurst and Sergeant Emma Scribbins, aka "Ash and Scribbs".
I decided to watch this based on the rating here and the positive reviews.
I don't agree with the high rating and the very positive reviews, while this is not a bad mini series it's nothing special either in my opinion. Some compare it to Se7en, that is absolutely not the case.
It is your average,run off the mill, cop vs serial killer scenario, without giving too much away of the plot i can say that it baffles me that the the connection wasn't made earlier (i did and nothing is given away). So i was watching this thinking there had to be another plot twist that i missed, i didn't.
Furthermore, the production is average, the acting is above average but what annoys me with these kind of series that there always has to be something wrong with the "hero". Either a drinking problem, separated, dead child or you name it. Why is that? In my opinion, if you have nothing to do an a rainy Sunday afternoon you can watch this but don't expect anything too much. They tried too hard.
