Spicy!
10 May 2019 | by m_winshipSee all my reviews

British cop series; quite entertaining IMHO! You'll like this a lot as it's quite original and spicy too. Series ran from 2003 through 1008? For about five seasons I think. It's full of intelligent and cohesive dialogue and detective processes. You'll being paying attention as each episode runs in many sub plots and clued up mysteries at once. Enjoy on Amazon, and tell me what you think! ? Murf
