Truly excellent series !
3 December 2015 | by (Edegem Belgium) – See all my reviews

I had to write this comment because of the two bad user comments that are in fact totally and utterly preposterous.

This is an excellent series: good story, superb casting and acting (especially Hayley Atwell!), exiting and in the whole an extremely entertaining BBC production.

The quality of the series is - as most of BBC's crime series - super: the three episodes in the three consecutive decades (198's0, 1990's, 2000's) are pictured remarkably good in the corresponding time image.

I'm not going to reveal much about the story - read the summary - but the series is well worth watching . . .if you like good crime stories no doubt you'll love this one!
