Really enjoyed both series
I enjoyed all of them! All quite different cases/stories with some well known faces. There's some funny moments, especially the Sean Bean character some of his erm her sarcastic remarks & comments made me laugh out loud.
I binge watched them & still wanted more. Very entertaining I hope you like them too.

Notable English Playwrights
Have binge watch both of the seasons of this exemplory works and they are the best in British drama since the good old days of Play for Today. Two English playwrights, both from Liverpool are of this era: Alan Bleasdale and Jimmy McGovern.
Jimmy is an artist with reputation and talent enough to draw the top notch talent England has to offer and trainspot through all episodes to note those to be seen in the best on both sides of the pond. The cast is so stellar and the writing so good that once over, the viewer goes into an immediate mourning: only Alan Bennet's Talking Heads were this good at Protagonist focus and journey. Watch Sean Bean in the final court appearance as his alter ego: this is a timely piece noting modernity (like Black Mirror) but puts the old school dramatic structures in borne from Aristole in giving a beginning middle and end.
Olivia Colman gives the performance of her life.....absolute must for any student of writing or drama.
Hard to beat. There is bound to be an American version .....

Amazing second series.
Sran Bean acted his socks off.
I loved his episide but the others are equal high standard as the first series.
Sean Beans portrayal of Tracie however is award winning

Brilliant
Jimmy mcgovern is a superb writer, very similar to the brilliant The Street. I also binge watched this series. I wish there was more to watch. The characters were believable and acted well.
