Divisive rubbish
22 April 2017 | by gilesadhamiltonSee all my reviews

Whilst race relations in the U.K were not ideal in the 70s you can take it as read the Police force was not made up of Rhodesians and South Africans bent on imposing apartheid nor did they murder protesters in cold blood in front of the general public (there would, anyway, be easier ways of dispensing with enemies). Nor was there a bomb planting, machine gun toting hybrid of the Black Panthers and Red Brigade. Given that race relations are pretty good and young people are extremely gullible this is dangerously divisive rubbish. Idris Elba has benefited from England's cosmopolitan society more than most and should know better. Every single English white person in the entire series is portrayed as a thug at best, psycho at worst. The Baader Meinhof financiers however seem delightful
