The main actor is very charming. Several actresses are also very well selected

Directed by.... Directed by.... It's a pretty predictable type of production, throwing together the ingredients so beloved of British TV crime these days: murders, shady blackmailing, adultery, CCTV footage, thugs and horrible crimes in pretty rural locales. The plot is fairly interesting, but the main problem is that there isn't enough story to justify the five hour running time.

The upshot of this is that the production is long winded in the extreme, drip-feeding the viewer flashbacks and clues at an incredibly slow pace before tying everything up in the final episode.

Directed by Colm McCarthy in 2011, this five-part British TV mini-series merges legal drama, police investigation and high-tension suspense in an stmosphere of moral ambiguity.
It focuses on criminal barrister William Travers, who has lost faith in the legal system following a traumatic series of events.
Unlike other court-&-police movies, this nicely complex and multi-layered drama delves into the corners of deep mind as well as conscience beyond a mere action-filled police drama.
If possible, the trial of William Travers would seem far more interesting!

The series showed who had done it in the first episode but the spoiler did not diminish viewer's interest to know why. Along the way, we get to see some of the London sights and watch the two male leads (barrister Travers and cop Wenborn) carrying out their own special brand of justice/injustice,

however morally repugnant on a number of levels, this psychological thriller does pack a pretty powerful punch, with production values, essentially, through the roof, everyone, and everything, is impeccable

James Purefoy and Charlie Creed-Miles play psychologically impaired defense attorney and + police detective, respectfully. Correctly determining the end is about the same as correctly determining the correct results of the NCAA basketball tournament.

Great story! AND It was left in perfect position to keep going on with *the next season* - would it be created: with the rookie after the master, keeping us all in suspense, not to mention the ethical paradox. Was that cryptic enough? Clear enough, that is, for those who've seen this and who might holler for that next episode, and many to follow? And without a spoiler alert required, that is (?)

It's great, stay with it. After the first episode I thought it was very dark and was afraid things would turn out badly. I hate bad endings. However, there are some completely unexpected twists. You'll like how it all gets resolved. I give it 5 stars. How do I add the stars? Oh well, another mystery.
