Under the radar
22 October 2018 | by anne40See all my reviews

I'm surprised by the negative reviews for this series. I think with all the great dramas that are showing at the moment this series has slipped under the radar a bit. Great cast and definitely worth a watch, I suspect it's uncomfortably close to the truth about what goes on the in the murky world of journalism
