Storyline

The team is called in after Mr. Stickley of the Police complaints Board feels that something is not right about an armed police raid on a house where several people were killed, including one of the officers and a mystery woman. A young Muslim called Melik has been badly wounded and lies in hospital. Mr. Stickley believes the policeman was killed by Rhys Allen, a colleague who was having an affair with the deceased's wife. Melik's sister Isra confides in Nikki that all the 'suspects' were unarmed and not terrorists and fears of a cover-up by the authorities are not helped by the aggressive attitude of Inspector Transfield, particularly when Nikki is attacked and evidence stolen from her laptop.

Hugely bleak, but very watchable.
8 November 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The team are called in to investigate after a suspected terrorist raid resulted in several victims, one being armed response unit officer Nathan Wright. Initial investigations show no evidence of the victims being involved in terrorism, Nikki questions why they were shot and begins investigating herself. Nathan's colleague Rhys Allen had been having an affair with his wife and is grilled by Edwin Stickley from the complaints department. DI Tranfield is desperate for a conviction, he grilled young Isra, who's brother lay in hospital after the raid. Evidence points to Nathan having been shot by a fellow officer. Nikki is attacked at gunpoint and her evidence taken.

Possibly guilty of being overly graphic, quite a few episodes at the time were. It's a very interesting story, it develops quite well, it focuses more on Nathan Wright's shooting as it progresses, it's almost side stepped at the beginning.

One of the only gripes I have is that it's incredibly bleak and grim, it would have benefited from a little humour now and then, it's serious matter, just a bit heavy.

I'm not the biggest fan of Shaun Dooley, but I find him rather good in this, it's one of his better outings. Ciarán McMenamin, Gary Lewis and Michael Higgs are all very strong.

How on Earth did Nikki's voyeuristic Taxi not crash that car?

Best bit, the ending. 7/10
