After reading one writer's very negative review I was expecting the worst from this series, but found myself watching all six episodes over two nights. It was like a novel I couldn't put down.
My take on the plot is that it is complex, but not convoluted. The characters are almost all interesting, from Robson Green's Jack Chambers and the other main players to the various minor parts, including that of Jack's father Don. The acting was superb from all the cast.
I can't say I "enjoyed" the drama - it was too tense for that - but I was certainly gripped by it, to the very last. I'd have liked to see where the story went from it's ending ....
