My wife and I watched two episodes in this series. The first left us stunned it was so bad. There seems to be a rule amongst actors that if the script is really awful then to try and improve on it you need to overact. Well, overact these actors did and I'm afraid that only made a bad TV show with a terrible and unbelievable plot a whole lot worse.
Why we bothered to watch the second episode on the DVD a week later I'm not sure. The two of us watched in stony silence throughout. When it was over, I said something like, "that was a lot better than the first one." My wife responded with, "I thought it was utter rubbish." The sad thing is we were both right. And that will tell you just how awful the first episode must have been.
I used to like Keely Hawes (from MI5/Spooks) but I'm afraid I've gone right off her after this experience.
The DVD went back to the library after the second episode so I'll never find out how the subplot with the undercover cop gone bad turned out. Somehow I'm not going to lose any sleep over this.
