Why one series?
25 August 2006 | by jds303See all my reviews

Channel 4 stuck this gem on late at night for students and the unemployed. Never has a greater gift been bestowed upon the wasters and insomniacs. This was a great series full of great scripts and above all a stand out performance from Lennie James in the lead role as a guy sent to prison for beating up a guy who had tried to rape his sister (if i remembered it correctly) I can understand why it was only one series because not a lot of people saw it. But there are still three letters i need to say to channel 4, more of a request than a quandary, DVD? This prison drama was probably the best drama of the year and its a wonder why Lennie James is not more famous. Someone give him a lead..please!
