Good stuff
30 January 2002 | by (Stafford, England) – See all my reviews



This was an impressive effort from James Nesbitt (better known as Adam from ITV's Cold Feet), ably supported by RADA graduate Claudia Harrison.

Yeah sure, the story had definitely been seen before - policeman impresses crime boss, infiltrates gang - and all the undercover cop cliches were present and correct (maverick, plays by his own rules, possibly family tragedy), but still, this was well-acted, tightly scripted, satisfying TV. We hope to see more from James Nesbitt in the future. 8/10
