Wow! Discovered this Brit series by chance and got hooked immediately. Characters are written with depth and honesty, their private lives brimming with challenges and uncertainty, while the major cases they explore are are also pretty fascinating. Of course, the acting is terrific. Scott (Lesley Sharp) and Bailey (Suranne Jones) are an unlikely but compelling duo, one a dutiful wife and mother; the other single and screwed up. Their back stories are no less than riveting. Casting across the board is seductively brilliant, including, in recurring roles, Amelia Bullmore as SCI Murray, the detective in charge; Nicholas Gleaves, as another detective in the squad; and Rupert Graves as a sexy barrister who nearly destroys Bailey's career. By the time you get to episode 5 or 6 in the first season, you start worrying that there are only 3 more seasons to go in this wonderfully satisfying drama.
