Tennant at his brilliant best
20 September 2019 | by gibbs-18172See all my reviews

A superb 3 part unique cop / villain type show that is the best thing on Netflix series of 2019 so far. 4 different 3 parters this one based in the U. K. The others based in Spain, France and Germany. Having already watched 2 of the Spanish episodes I can vouch that I will be a fan. I have decided to rate each country separately. This would have been a 10 but the 3rd episode just missed the mark for me.

The coppers in each country are the same and have enough background for a season 2, the suspects and stories vary so far apart and you will be surprised by the ending of some.

Once again Netflix show the States that the U. K. and Europe can not just match them now but exceed them.

This as all the potential of Black Mirror status.

Please please don't dump this Netflix
