Homeless and on the run from a military court martial, a damaged ex-special forces soldier navigating London's criminal underworld seizes an opportunity to assume another man's identity -- transforming into an avenging angel in the process.
Critically panned when it aired, and never picked up for a second series, I think I was the only viewer who liked it...but I really did. I liked the modern family before the wonderful US sitcom 'Modern Family'). Multi racial, multi cultural, with a prominent character with visible disabilities (that were not simply a plot device for one episode) I thought it was forward looking in its sensibilities. The married couples dynamic was not new, but I liked the chemistry between the leading players. Carrot has tried his hand at acting successfully previously (with the Detectives)but this failure seems to have shut down any acting ambitions, I think he should go again, he had warmth, and that's a rare characteristic in modern English comedians. It will probably be confined to the vaults, but if it does resurface, give it a go and you may be surprised.
