.. it really does not get much better.. bravo to all involved.
8 December 2015 | by bjariasSee all my reviews

Cop dramas have a great tendency to follow a formula script, and as a result after several seasons usually become tedious and boring, and audiences continue watching them mostly out of habit. Scott & Bailey is the huge exception to the rule, and I'm positive that those knowing just how good a program this is they're watching, want it to continue on indefinitely. There's actor after actor in this marvelous series that consistently do outstanding work.. and for it all to end, well, would just be criminal. It's one of the ironies that when it looks so easy, an enormous amount of talent and effort on all sides make it appear that way. All involved are producing top flight work, and deserve all the accolades they get. I watched Doctor Foster and that turned me on to one of the leads in this series... soooo glad I did. The final season was short.. and once again extremely good. Know they wished to go out 'on-a-high'.. but this is another series that will be sorely missed.
