Mercurio is the best there is...
27 August 2018 | by morganpedwards-15420See all my reviews

Excellent episodes 1&2. The pacing is masterly. The action is gripping. The surprises are, er, surprising. The performances are all outstanding. Even better than Line of Duty 3. And that's saying something.
