Beautiful Series in Every Way!!!, 7 March 2013

This is one of the most excellent crime dramas I have ever come across. (And I am an aficionado of these types of series.) It is *brilliantly* acted, written, directed, and produced. The quality of the series is, in short, quite amazing. I only wish that it had continued, but I don't see any indications that it did continue, past these 6 episodes. In any case, if you're a fan of crime dramas, I would definitively recommend this series. It is truly stellar in its class of British excellence. (And let's face it, Britain has some of the finest actors and productions in the world, if not the finest. :D). Thanks to all involved in the production of this truly excellent series!
