Great acting, great directing and a powerful story
It isn't often that a drama manages to capture such a dark and tragic atmosphere, while still maintaining a deep emotional core. The series chronicles four different stories that tie in thematically and paint a gritty, but fundamentally compelling picture of those unseen tragedies that happen every day in our urban world.
The production was excellent, as was the acting. The entire cast did a great job in delivering gripping performances, but special mention must be made to Olivia Colman and Lennie James, who, as always, never cease to impress. This series is an emotional roller-coaster that will leave a lasting impression on the viewer.
