A big disappointment. I expected much better considering the cast, prior ratings and amazon reviews. It was a big hit in England. I am a fan of British mysteries and crime dramas, but this series misses the mark in my opinion. I hated Cracker too, so be warned if you didn't care for that series. I've only watched one episode of season one but the writing was full of cliches, the lead actor is very a bully, angry and overacting.
