Storyline

Following Jack's suicide Hardy is dubbed the worst cop in England by tabloids. The town turns out to the funeral, Karen's presence, since she has returned to London being unwelcome in view of her piece on Jack. Paul's sermon lambastes Jack's persecutors but Hardy, seeing him close to sea scouts, is suspicious and discovers that the young vicar is a reformed alcoholic who hit a boy when he was still drinking. As summer turns to autumn Beth bonds with Cate Gillespie, the mother of another murdered child, who hates Hardy for his ineptitude in handling her case. Maggie and Olly discover damning evidence regarding Susan's ex-husband and after she has given Tom Danny's skateboard, saying she was looking after it, she is brought in by the police, Nige stealing her dog. Ellie and Hardy are called out when an intruder is sighted at the murder scene but he evades them and Hardy collapses again. Written by don @ minifie-1

Please tell me it gets better...
22 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just started pounding my way through the 1st six episodes of the first season and I can't believe they are still dragging out the same storyline! I started watching because of David Tennant but I am at the point where I really don't care anymore who killed the kid. I was never given the chance to form an emotional attachment to him anyway. Just tell me subsequent episodes get better before I turn it off for good!

It seems that I must write more. The story makes virtually every character a suspect. When it isn't implicating someone it is questioning Tennant's character's ability to solve the crime. It seems that our hero has clay feet. The only thing the audience is given is the killer has strong hands. The rest of the time is consumed by the ever so slowly developing relationship between Tennant and his female counterpart on the force.

Yawn...
