Dirty Dealings and Manipulation
17 October 2018 | by martyncymroSee all my reviews

Set in modern day London, the series concerns the police's fight against terrorism and the criminal intelligence unit charged with gathering intelligence on potential terrorist acts. The lead is played by Paddy Considine, (The Girl with All the Gifts', 'Pride', 'Cinderella Man') as an experienced officer with a troubled past, and co-stars Bel Powley, ('The Diary of a Teenage Girl' and 'Wilding'), as a new officer in the unit desperate to prove herself, and newcomer to TV drama, Nabhaan Rizwan. as a young British Muslim man of Pakistan descent who is manipulated and dragged into the dark world of being a police informant. The intelligence believes itself to be in a race against time to prevent a massive terrorist attack in London and is prepared to go to any length in order to stop it. I found little to fault in the first episode, which I thoroughly enjoyed, and look forward to future episodes.
