Trivia

In the build up to the original broadcast, promotional materials included statements from Harry Fletcher, then Assistant Secretary General of the NAPO (the probation union), that he had been consulted over the script. He claimed to have successfully advocated for several unrealistic plot devices to be removed during script development. In the weeks following broadcast several blogs written by probation officers in England and Wales wrote critical posts about how unrealistic the plot and characters were. See more »

fans of good acting will love this portrayal of Eddy
3 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

i checked out the IMDb rating on this series before i watched it and was in two minds whether to bother with a 6.6 rated show. I must have had my 'lucky mind' in gear, as i decided to give the first episode a go. 3 parts in and i cannot believe that this series has such a low score. the acting is top drawer. Daniel is, as ever, very good indeed. The subject matter is raw, gritty and so very rarely touched upon; the post prison trials and tribulations of a man convicted of the most serious of all crimes. I really got to feel the heartache of a lost man, even before the storyline tells us that he claims he is innocent. I'm not a proper critic and don't even have the right terminology to express myself on this site, but this series is well worth anyone's time, even if it's only to appreciate some very good acting.
