Storyline

For the past twenty years Maya Cobbina has defended Rudy Jones, a man falsely imprisoned for murder. Today he is to be executed by lethal injection in Louisiana. Rudy's parting words are "Go big" - he wants her to change the system that allows such injustices to occur. With Rudy's appeal ringing in her ears, Maya returns to London and discovers that she's been pegged to take the role of Director of Public Prosecutions, a prominent position that might allow her to finally bring to justice the death of her friend Michael Antwi, a charismatic anti-racism campaigner. Maya's husband Nick Johnson is a man dedicated to his wife and children. When a hidden past threatens to destroy his world, to what lengths will he go to protect his family? Written by Carl Hillier

Interesting premise let down by an implausible story
17 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Undercover offers an interesting premise, that is let down by an implausible story.

Without giving too much away, the notion that Undercover is built upon is interesting but its taken to such implausible extremes as to render the whole proposition unbelievable. Worse still and perhaps not surprisingly, the story simply doesn't hold together all that well as a tale of crime, politics and espionage (of a kind) gradually unfolds.The rather flat, abrupt ending, does not help matters either.

Its a shame too, as there is some genuine acting talent on offer, who hand in really excellent performances. Sophie Okonedo, in particular, is to be commended on her heartfelt, passionate performance, as criminal attorney, Maya Corbina.

In short, Undercover is a series I want to like. It has good production values and a quality cast. That said, its story is simply too weak to carry it. Five out of ten from me.
