In December 2013, the BBC announced that it was canceling the show after two seasons, citing low viewing figures in the United Kingdom as the reason for its cancellation. Tiger Aspect, the show's producer, began negotiations with LOVEFilm - since folded into Amazon Instant Video - about funding a third season. A deal was reached, and the third season began filming in May 2014, before beginning streaming on Amazon UK Prime Instant Video on 14 November 2014. However, the third season was not added to Amazon Instant Video in the United States, but aired instead on BBC America in early 2015 and in the UK in July 2015. See more »

Amazing, enticing, suspenseful, endearing, keeps you longing for your next "fix".
24 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I truly love this show!!! The actors are so captivating and addicting. I can't get enough. You are instantly drawn in from the second it starts. Through their performance they make you feel connected on such an emotional level. I really enjoy "getting lost" in a show that i watch; this show is so consuming that you cannot help but get lost in it. I cannot wait to see what comes next season. I just hope that the series continues as triumphant as it began; with all the wonderful writers, actors, directors, producers, and everyone else that made it such a great success. Shows such as these make "movie" night suspenseful and enjoyable! The shear talent/gift that it takes to create these story lines/plots/themes never creases to amaze me!
