Entertaining .

I'll assume the majority of the writing was done by Greg Hall, who although not a seasoned writer, came up with a great story that manipulates your sympathies with unexpected twists that played out really well.

All makes for an unpredictable performance with a great supporting cast.

I enjoyed it.

A bit different and well worth watching.

Authentic, engaging and very emotional.

The cockney wide boy crime element is secondary to what is a story with heart, fleshed out human characters and compelling story.

Only Craig was good the rest was cardboard acting and the story we've seen the exact same last time it was same ending a thug shoots the bloke at end unexpected Not If this is all Craig can do its best he retires or joins Corrie

That was quite brilliant, I absolutely loved it, Great pacing, Lovely lighting, Nice change in tone from Pat Tate, Eddie Trying to be pleasant, bar bill scene was perfect, Never heard anyone speak to a Fairbrass character that way Brilliant Story arc knowing that revenge is coming, Watching Eddie slowly break and unravel after being pushed and pushed, Great character development with plenty of depth, Simple, straightforward, engaging The first reveal I couldn't believe it, what a great twist, loved the slow camera pan out for the "reveal" The ending OMFG 😮 Incredible performance, up the with the career best top 5 👏👏

Gripping Crime Drama .

But this one was quite the unexpected surprise.

Gripping from start to finish.

It starts out slow, simple and somewhat typical.
