Gates returns to rescue Arnott but leaves before Kate, her cover now blown, arrives to find evidence that a body had been stored at the warehouse. Arnott recalls that the chief torturer was called Tommy and admits to Kate that Gates saved him. She believes he is weakening in his attitude to Gates, whom he goes to see in secret, confirming his view that Gates is innocent of all the murders. Convinced that Gates is in danger but can bring the killers to justice Arnott persuades Hastings to let Gates set up a meeting with Tommy, recorded on a wire. Arnott and Kate intend to meet up with them but before they can do so Gates abducts Tommy to force a confession before committing an extreme act in the line of duty. Written by don @ minifie-1

British mystery/thriller writing at it's best!
23 July 2012 | by (Tucson, AZ) – See all my reviews

I am consistently amazed at the writing talents and the acting talents that come out of England. Jed Mercurio's creation of this suspenseful police drama is top notch. There are tons of twists and turns and just when you think the action is going one way, a new idea or situation is placed in front of us to ponder. The premise is that a young DS, who won't lie in court for his fellow police officers is ostracized and gets transferred to the anti-corruption unit. His new unit specifically investigates potentially corrupt cops and that's where D.C. Gates comes into the picture. A cat and mouse game starts between the seasoned and decorated D.C. Gates, played brilliantly by the under utilized actor in Lennie James and D.S. Arnott, played by Martin Compston (Ewin Brodie in Monach of the Glen) Within the story is another mystery that is going on and all roads eventually collide. I would love to compare this show with another and I cannot. It has the camera feeling of Law and Order (UK) so there is a gritty quality to it. The scenery is drab and gray and the police office and what they wear blends in. Its the acting and the writing that stands out. Adrian Dunbar is brilliant as usual as D.S. Arnott's boss, a man whose seen a lot more in his lifetime than any of us ever will. I am putting out to the Universe that there will be a Season 2.
