I'll watch this more than once
10 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Beeb, like little Jack Horner, has put in it's thumb and pulled yet another plum classic out of it's pie, with this wonderfully convoluted crime thriller about dodgy cops, drugs, money and "which one is the good guy?" stuff. I have now watched six of the 7 episodes and still don't really know WTF is going on ! But I will watch every minute until it is over and then probably experience some serious withdrawal symptoms for a while. Director Hugo Blick has created a slow-paced atmospheric series where it is nigh impossible to come close to predicting what will come next. It's as cliché-free a story as I have seen recently, with some seriously good set pieces/face-offs and nobody is what they appear to be, except maybe the cat. It also is a masterclass in acting from Stephen Rea, Chris Ecclestone, Antony Sher, Chiwetel wotsisname and others and the editing, lighting and locations are dark and menacing, as an example, the alleyway scene, where Glickman and his girlfriend reunite. WoW Recommended
