Very, very poor.
3 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

I came to this late on the naive assumption that you don't make 17 series of something if it's a bit of a dog. Huge mistake. Utter garbage.

Look up "Confirmation Bias" at a source you trust. The cops exhibit this to the point of seeming thoroughly unprofessional. I get that all series of this type have to work through several theories before eventually peeling away enough layers to expose the final truth. But they don't all go around arresting people when there's only circumstantial evidence. Watch a documentary like "Murder Shift" and you'll see this hardly ever happens.

The dialogue is self consciously quirky and stilted each of the characters vying to exhibit some personality defect as a substitute for proper character development.

Then they put the cherry on top with the "you can't catch Mossad agents" trope. They follow some ransom money with no helicopter support to make sure they can play that card.

Sickeningly bad. They axed Ripper Street to turn out rubbish like this?
