Hooked me in and then never let go
23 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I missed this when shown on TV but caught up with it on demand. I only intended to watch the 1st episode tonight, but I am writing this having sat captivated for all 3 episodes. This is by far the best drama I have seen in years. The story of these 3 men is compelling and powerfully written. The acting is without fault, especially the three lead roles. You really get to understand these people and the journey they go through. If you ever get the chance to watch this drama series do so and very well done the BBC for getting this made. I challenge anyone to watch the whole series and not be challenged about what they believe about the impact on war on the soldiers serving and in particular the implications of the war in Iraq on that country and it's people.
