Good stuff!, 15 May 2015
Author: Robin Rowlands from Australia

I enjoyed Season 1 for the "noir" direction and the clever plot - very Scandinavian in tone as mentioned by others. Have not yet watched Season 2 so hope it's up to scratch.

Sure there are lots of holes in police procedures, but I don't trouble myself too much with reality when watching great fiction.

Lennie James in particular is outstanding acting the troubled, charismatic DI Gates, and Gina McKee does a good as the ultra-manipulative temptress Jackie Laverty. The rest of the cast put in good solid "backup". Deserving of a special mention, young Gregory Piper is absolutely brilliant as Jake Pilkington and, if his truly nasty character is anything to go by, who would want to be a British city cop???

English council estates get the usual bad wrap, and the police force doesn't fair too well either. Plenty of corruption, indifference and red tape on show.

Brits really do it best.
