Brían F. O'Byrne,
Yorkshire award-winning crime drama by Sally Wainwright following a young woman's release from prison after 15 or 16 years time served for murdering two police officers. All she wants now is to find her younger sister.
Joseph falls into despair when his nine-year-old son leaves for Australia with his ex. Sufffering the hangover from hell, he walks away from his present life and boards a boat bound for Ireland to confront memories from his childhood.
Good points: this has great character development, each with their own quips and nuances, excellent acting especially from Lennie James, and submerges the viewer to working-class inner city London and uncomfortable insights into a murkier world. Highlights the plasticity of people - no one is all good or all bad - most are shades of grey. Overall, a fantastic and unconventional drama.
Bad points: a few moments where you would not expect a character or human being for that matter to act or react, making these moments implausible. Ending also a let down for some.
