The screenplay provides an abundance of clichés and 'relationship babel' lines, the young female detective is me-me-me off-putting, her gruff love-interest 'acts' by glowering at all and sundry, and the whole effort turns unconvincing. Indeed, the last five minutes, which oh so obviously sets us up for season 2, is plainly ridiculous. What is amazing is the difference made when the few adults in this series come on screen. When the camera shifts to Lindsey Coulson, who plays superbly the DI in charge of the investigation, you feel a physical sense of relief. Same thing with Amanda Burton, the scheming matriarch. Bottom line: if you are looking for another 'Line of Duty', keep looking.

I watched this because it says that Philip Glenister is in it, but he's killed off in the first 30 seconds. I kept thinking his character might reappear in flashbacks, but he didn't. I wonder why he offered to do such a tiny part. Maybe he has a history with the writers or producers.

I like cop shows and thrillers, but this one was hard to get into. I just didn't warm to any of the characters. I also found much of it implausible.

I found the plot unfeasible, and the fact the woman detective who has been shot is able to run fast and jump fences. Really! The ending is wide open for season 2 which I won't be watching. Definitely not up to Acorn very high standards.

I really enjoyed this series. It has lots of intrigue and left you wondering who did it and why, almost until the very end. Many twists and turns and complicated relationships. Not suitable for children, as there is violence and foul language.

Well done - twists and turns - couldn't figure out who was the bad guy
