I would tend to agree with the reviewer...
4 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

who says this smacks of creeping americanism in brit TV (and we Americans love brit TV because of its britishness, we don't want to see slick American 'product'when we watch it) but I think, much more than copying any American template here, it's a copy of a copy...it's trying to be MI-5 aka "Spooks" with its flash cutting, 'black-box' multi-screen technique, and self-consciously arty camera-work. And it ain't no "Spooks." Worth watching, for me, for the lovely Simone Lahbib (can't wait for the new season of 'Wire in the Blood') who is interestingly cast here in what seems, for most of the piece, like a totally thankless role. I figured out the denouement early on based on non-scripted deduction and intuition, *G* but got absolutely none of the usual clues from a story peppered with rather obvious red herrings. And I would defend the unemotional way this wonderfully emotional actress played (and was cast deliberately I'd guess) against 'type.' It was the only thing the 'mystery' (which seems to have been a pilot for the lead actor?) had going for it.
