Got me hooked up - have to keep on watching!
Verified purchase
Really enjoyed. Kept me at the edge of my seat the whole time, also my heart skipped a beat few times because it was so intense. Very well made series 1: the cast was brilliant - all emotions seemed natural, script is very good - difficult to find any faults or inconsistencies; the choice of camera angles and picture manipulation suited right to every moment filmed.
Overall, I would recommend to watch it to anyone who likes thriller dramas. Do not watch the trailer - it doesn't do the justice to series.

Probably the most outstanding crime series available on any channel in the country. Fantastic,the writer's knowledge of police procedures together with enviable imagination is astonishing.

Disappointed
Verified purchase
I found the storyline quite complicated and was disappointed that I had spent all that time watching and there wasn’t really a conclusion. I suppose it’s intended to encourage me to watch series 2. Lots of friends have enjoyed this programme so maybe it gets better as it goes on.

An excellent detective thriller
Verified purchase
I thought the acting was brilliant in every aspect. A good story with many side plots which focussed interest on the main story. There were some improbable police episodes which rather spoilt the reality of the plot. However this is TV fiction and extremely well done, especially the lead actors who were very well supported. Ten out of ten for the writer, director and film crew.

Brilliant

Outstanding series, totally addictive. Classy production. Best to start from the first series as the plot and characters develop through the series.

Gripping
Verified purchase
I'd only seen the last episode of the last series, so I thought I'd start at the beginning, even though I knew the ending just still see how we got there.

Very gripping, with lots of twists. You don't lose anything by knowing the ultimate ending.

Gripping
Verified purchase
Excellent - a well written, twisty-turny plot about police corruption being investigated from within the force. Violent at times, but necessarily so and cleverly done. Gripping is the word. I had to watch all of this in one sitting once it got started. Nothing and no-one is quite what they seem to be, and it's all beautifully plausible yet surprising. Great performances too, though I thought that, as a lead performer, Martin Compston as Arnott looked a bit out of his depth at times, more at home working in a shoe shop than a cop shop. Now to watch series 2...

Great idea, unnecessarily violent.
Verified purchase
I object to being shown torture as if it happens regularly to the UK police.
Not credible story line. Not credible narrative.
Great acting - Almost everyone.
