One-line Reviews (14)

With a visually stunning production (superb photography of London) and a marvellous score, it has two young leads - Ben Tavassoli and Mark Strepan - who are especially convincing in their parts whilst the talented Mark Addy and other wonderful character actors complete the excellent cast.

Ho hum........

The plots were imaginative--implausible but still entertaining and fine for television crime.

One has twinkling eyes and a truly engaging,winning smile...

Only the villains make the programme worth watching at all, and some of them are rubbish (I'm looking at you flat cap-wearing hit-man).

I can understand why it would attract a young audience but we are already grandparents and thoroughly enjoyed it (on cable TV in the Middle East).

Thoroughly enjoyable series .

Really engaging new cop' series.

The intertwining of Police and SFO investigations though contrived to fabricate the connected investigations are seamlessly intermingled with skillful screen writing and direction.

Imaginative and fast paced crime series.

The main characters are engaging and they work well together.

The formula may get tired if there are subsequent series; but the first series at least has been entertaining and fun.

Judging by other reviews this seems to be a love it or loathe it series and I'm pleased to say that I really enjoyed it; I hope we get a second series… the finale scene certainly looked like a set up for Series Two.

An enjoyable new BBC police drama .
