Loved it
12 November 2017 | by ditzzeechickSee all my reviews

We couldn't stop watching and would love a season 2 tomorrow! Banville was compelling, as was Greenwood. Would love to see these two characters fleshed out even more. Her partners retorts to her demands at the end were brilliant. I'd like to see more of Dom next season (right, get on this!?) I'v managed to watch all Brit TV for the past 6 years & have raved to family members about the quality & depth of programs where no one screams, all women aren't pretending to be tough guys & how USA TV is shite.... to no avail...until we all cut the cord. We all now are members of BritBox, AcornTv, Walter Presents, Netflix, AMZN & the list will expand. As long as you produce shows like Fearless, River, Paranoid, Happy Valley, Norskov, Rita we'll happily live to see the demise of USA crap TV. This wasn't the BEST show ever, but it beats 99% of what we're offered on this side of the Atlantic. More, more more!
