Gritty UK Police Drama
10 August 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

You probably need to one, like UK drama and two, like Police shows to watch this, although if you are a Ray Winstone fan it would also suit you. This is a typical UK Police drama that fans of the genre have come to love and personally it does not disappoint.

Ray Winstone character Lenny Milton is a "lowly" DC who is known for being a very straight cop, unlike most of his colleagues who have been corrupted in one way or another. His best friend DCI Mike Love, who is also his boss is being investigated for corruption and Lenny is persuaded to lend a helping hand obtaining evidence. His colleagues suspect he has been "turned" and target him to get him kicked out of the force or put away. This is where it gets quite nasty.

I would compare this to the more recent Luther, although not quite as good. Easily a 7 out of 10.
