The series follows Molly on her first deployment as a serving army medic against the backdrop of the British Army's withdrawal from Afghanistan. Series 2 introduces Georgie, her more experienced friend, as she is deployed to Eastern Africa.
The series is about a Customs Officer, Marcus Ashton (Ash) who is recruited to a new law enforcement team tasked with hunting down some of Britain's most wanted criminals. The series is inspired by the book of the same name which details the career of former customs agent Cameron Addicott, written by Kris Hollington.
Sally Newell writing for The Independent wrote that the "watchable but predictable prime-time cop drama" was like "EastEnders on an adrenaline rush, but this contrived cop show lacks heart." See more »
It's got prospects if it develops. OK for a first episode.
This series may become worth watching and I found it OK for a first episode. The basic idea is interesting and it may develop well.
The acting of the lead character isn't of the best quality as his petulant storming around is more akin to a 13-14 year old having a paddy than a professional detective/ customs officer.
However, the suggestion of another reviewer that the IT abilities are 'way beyond capabilities' is farcical. They are speaking without any knowledge. I worked in an IT surveillance role years ago and reality was beyond those 'capabilities' many years ago.
So back to the series. Directing is poor and lets unrealistic acting rule. The characters may develop well as may the story lines.
I would suggest that you watch it and give it a chance. It is entertaining.
