Superb
31 January 2015 | by jquilty1See all my reviews

What a brilliant series,

Superbly acted and directed.

One of the best TV series I've seen in the last 5 years.

Riveting. I can only hope there is another couple of series coming. There is no a single weak acting performance. Its realistic, its gritty yet tender. This series has hooks pulling you in from start to finish. Some of the acting is stellar. i cannot rate this show highly enough. Do yourself a favour and download the whole series. Like The Walking Dead...its one of those shows where one episode is not enough. English dramas are generally good but this is top shelf.
