As she deals with an unexpected pregnancy, D.I. Helen Weeks must return to the hometown she loathes to help her childhood best friend, who finds herself at the centre of a media frenzy following the abduction of two teenage girls.
This was an extremely difficult and scary mini-series to watch. It was so unflinchingly true. We get so caught up in television series like "Law & Order: SVU" where the positive outcome of the many aspects of sexual crimes are dealt with. But in reality, the justice system is much more unforgiving and I'm certain that child sexual grooming is not just going on in the United Kingdom but of course, the British have tackled the problem first. I had to give this series a "10" the pace, the writing, acting, directing was superb. I hope many eyes will be opened.
