Storyline

Two police officers are called to an apparent domestic where they find Lucy Payne unconscious. Investigating a noise in the cellar they are attacked by her husband Marcus, who kills one of them with a machete before the other, Janet Taylor, knocks him out and he is arrested. D.C.I. Alan Banks comes to the house and finds the corpses of four missing blonde girls, though there is no sign of Leanne Wray, who also disappeared. The case is hampered when, due to an interfering hospital doctor perturbed that Janet put Payne in a coma, Alan is shadowed by annoying D.S. Annie Cabbot from the Professional Standards Department. Lucy, a frequent victim of her husband's violence, cannot help trace Leanne, being unaware that her husband was a mass killer and also unaware that he was having sex with Maggie, the concerned neighbour who wanted her to leave him and who called the police to the Paynes' house. After a chilly first meeting Annie suggests to Alan that they have a drink together and he ... Written by don @ minifie-1

Dreadful
11 September 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I hate this trend of detective dramas to choose the most gruesome scenario possible and/or to make it as dark as possible. In this case, the story begins with the abduction, systematic rape and torture, and eventual strangulation of five teenage girls. What a sick premise.

Early in the piece we have a basement scene with blood everywhere and a naked girl (dead) tied to a table being filmed with a TV camera. What a sick scene; this is not my idea of entertainment.

Banks himself is over the top and out of control at times, without any effective restraint. In one scene, the wife of the perpetrator, having been beaten, is in hospital. Banks charges in like a bull in a china shop and starts haranguing her. Banks's future sidekick is not much better. You would expect a bit of sensitivity here, e.g. a female police officer.

I will not be watching any more. Instead I shall stick to old series.
