Exceptional British mystery/drama
7 May 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is a very well produced 2 part series that draws you in right from the start and holds your interest till the end. Glennister is brilliant in the main role and the rest of the cast also do a fantastic job (tho Glennister's performance really carries the show). The younger cast members are worth noting, they all managed to make me want to slap their stupid faces - fine acting to evoke that kind of response in the viewer. :)

The plot is excellent and direction etc is tight - no wasted time or images and the camera work & soundtrack are top notch. The events are believable and frighteningly realistic and it all leads to a satisfying conclusion. This is British drama at it's finest - and I say this as a viewer who rarely likes dramas. This one has suspense and mystery but at heart it's definitely a drama. It also has some justifiable violence towards the end but nothing too grisly (if that's a concern). I should warn you tho, if you have teenage daughters it might make you want to lock them away for a few years till they have a few more brain cells.

I can't really say enough about how great this is. Just rent it and watch it. You wont regret it.
