Slick, watchable, but a little lacking in emotional heft
15 March 2021 | by paul2001sw-1See all my reviews

Jed Mercurio was a producer on 'Bloodlands', and the influence of 'Line of Duty' shows: check corrupt police, complicated plot, untrustworthy protagonists, elongated interview scences, and in this case, more than one character with a Northern Irish accent. In fact, the entire story is set in Northern Island, where a contemporary murder sounds echoes of the Troubles. Like 'Line of Duty', it's also very watchable, although the plotting isn't quite as clever. It's a bold move not to give the viewer a central figure to follow throughout, but also a disengaging one. But it's well put together, and supremely watchable, though a little lacking in emotional heft.
