Storyline

Leeds police constable Jo Gillespie is devastated when her husband, undercover officer Ryan, is killed in suspicious circumstances. As she battles to stay strong for the benefit of daughter Melly and stepson Hal, Jo is urged by her bosses, DCI Will Hepburn and Chief Constable Carolyn Jarecki, to leave it to her fellow officers to find the killer. But when the murder inquiry starts to uncover some dangerous secrets about Ryan, Jo's faith in the police family of which she has been a part for so long is severely tested. No longer sure who to trust, Jo embarks on her own investigation with the help of friend and colleague Jack Clark, but as they close in on the identity of Ryan's killer, Jo's hunt for the truth will put her own life in danger.

A bit silly!
8 May 2020 | by qui_jSee all my reviews

This is a poorly produced, B grade series by ITV. The acting is terrible, with the lead actress strutting about like a runway model and constantly pouting, often at the wrong moments. The plot is passable but the way in which it is presented and told is confusing. There is often lack of continuity and the ending is not surprising. Have not been impressed by the quality of ITV dramas on Sundance Now and can only hope they will improve,
