Storyline

Young Detective Constable Anna Travis joins the team led by D.C.I. Langton to investigate a series of gruesome murders of young women, which first began eight years previously. All the victims were prostitutes and all killed in the same way. Then a seventh body is found but this is the corpse of a student, though a vital piece of evidence links her death to the others, involving a house in Manchester where Alan Daniels, a popular young actor, grew up. Anna goes undercover to get to know him better but finds herself getting emotionally involved. Written by don @ minifie-1

Could've been better without Kelly Reilly
25 April 2019 | by cinebofSee all my reviews

As an avid series fan and with many British and other countries mystery/detective series to base this on, I cannot fathom why Kelly Reilly was cast in this role and once the director saw the appalling acting on season 1, why she was kept on in future seasons amazes me.She spoilt the programme for me, her acting was so feeble, and why was it necessary to dress a female detective in tight skirts and high heels and have her pouting all day long,,,,really! Apart from her, Ciaran was fantastic and held the show together and was helped by the supporting actors who were all great. The mystery was definitely watchable and if you can get beyond the gore and Kelly then the series will be worth a view.
