So Good...

I'm fairly addicted to British television. Especially the mysteries/detective/crime shows. This is one of the best of the best of the best. Smart and well-paced with great acting, it's quick to suck you in emotionally. Try at least a couple of episodes to let the characters develop a bit. Full of strong female characters, too - fantastic!

I am hooked!

I love this series! I like how the epi's are divided into 2 parts. It certainly keeps me gagging for the conclusion of an epi. Casting has been done well as all characters seem to get on well on screen.
