It is a different type of cop drama - filmed in semi-documentary mode so to speak. Someone might find it too slow or boring, but I disagree with it. The acting and locations are great. I just have a bit of a problem with reality shown around there. The main DI - Hugo Speer character lives in high rise luxurious and spacious apartment in a posh district of London. I wonder how much does it really cost and, if as cop with a wife working as social worker they would be able
to afford it at all. Another thing, annoying a bit is the relationship developed between the assistant detective and the witness - thing that is absolutely against the of code of conduct. Too much cliché in painting her as such naïve person could be irritating.
I pay attention to those details and therefore I can rate it only 4 out of 5. Overall - interesting and good to watch.

Well done series, with interesting and not-perfect main characters.

Usually, the British put out a very high quality crime show. This wasn't one of them. Very boring.

After watching "Line of Duty" and "Scott and Bailey", I found this series to be rather boring.

Watching this makes one long for the days of Prime Suspect calibre. I like Sharon Small so often chose things she is in. She is well known for playing Barbara Havers of the Linley series. Her film of 2004 Dear Frankie made me a fan, plus I like the soft Kirkcaldy accent. Billie character was good. Overall, I was disappointed in every way.

Just another cop show about "mean streets". Just not my type of show I guess.

As far as British cop shows go this one is a real disappointment. The acting was wooden, the characters were boring and the stories were dull. I know people will still want to see it but if you read this you can't say you weren't warned.

Another really good British cop series, this time from Acorn rather than BBC. Lots of new faces for me. The series was credited with being created by 1 person but I think different people wrote each of the individual episodes. The production was much like the series "Suspects" if you have seen that one. It is just different in some way without me being able to explain it. An earlier reviewer said it was documentary-style and I guess maybe that is it. It has some twists, some turns, some stories completed, and some dead-ends with the main story left unsolved. That sets up Season 2 nicely. I look forward to it.

I, for one, am glad to have found another Brit series! On the edge of the seat, with constant change of mind for the viewer as to who did it...I recommend this one!!!!
Oh yes...I am a Sharon Small and Hugo Speer fan as well.

Matter-of-fact Brit crime series shot in documentary style (no special lighting), with new murders to solve each episode. The crime team members all have their personalities which sometimes clash, but overall it's well-written and acted. There is a serial thread going through the series of lead DCI Bradford's wife who's been missing for 3 months.
