Storyline

The team goes to Afghanistan at the request of sergeant Scott Lambert to see if human remains found at a charity water supply project are those of his brother Daniel,missing for five years and presumed murdered by the Taliban. On arrival in the country they encounter a road block and land mine and Jack's mistrust of the army does not go down well with ex-military man Sean,who heads the private security force. Nikki finds some bones but her examination is interrupted by a Taliban attack,repulsed by Scott's men. Project leader Fawzia believes it was motivated by opposition to Western influences,exacerbated by the pathologists' arrival. Fawzia shows Leo a ruined building where Daniel was apparently imprisoned and Jack finds proof of his being shot in the back of the head. Nikki however worries herself over the treatment of the Taliban prisoners,who include an English fanatic,after one of them is killed by Sean and his death made to resemble suicide.

Controversial, a mixed bag.
23 October 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Greater love continues the show's recent format for rent off a series with the big finale, set on foreign fields. If you're able to suspend reality, and totally switch off, you'll enjoy it, if you start taking it too seriously you'll pick holes in it from start to finish. There are several moments when you ask yourself if that would really happen.

Definitely positives, the location work looks terrific, it's a dramatic landscape, and looks incredible, such a contrast to the usual British city setting. The music and production values are particularly good. It's well acted as always, Gaminara gives a great performance, Jack's character is a little irritating, after such a brilliant season, he's a bit petulant, a little immature.

I like the concept of the story, it's creative, and definitely controversial, as I said earlier you need to suspend belief, I wonder what happened to all the corpses piling up at the Lyell Centre?

After such a brilliant, reinvigorated series, I always found this one a wee bit of a let down, it's still good though. 7/10
