Product Description

Product Description

All six episodes of the award-winning BBC police drama. In a small northern town, two brothers serving in the police, Chris (William Ash) and Ray (Nicholas Gleaves), investigate the paedophile murder of a 12-year-old girl. When the brothers fear that the suspected killer might get away with his actions, they turn to vigilante justice, only for it to be revealed that the real killer is still on the loose. Caught between their need to deal with their guilt and the need to cover up their tracks, the case puts extraordinary pressures on the brothers. Laura Fraser and David Warner also star.

This is a good story about the snow-balling effects of one irrational action and all the people who are brought into the melee. It all starts with the murder of a young girl and all the assumptions made by the investigators - one rash consequence of those assumptions send the participants into a downward spiral. A well acted film with a good story line. This is not really suspense programme but still holds your attention.
However, the sound track is horrendous with loud unpleasant and irrelevant noises throughout that tended to make me want to switch it off. If you can stand the jarring noises which are put in at random then this well acted story is worth watching. I would have given it five without the ridiculous sound track and was tempted to give it one with it.

I missed this drama when it first aired and knew nothing about it when I watched it. I found the story very absorbing and the acting was first class. This drama benefits from having an ensemble cast, as there is plenty of incidental interest with the wider characters. I think it would have been more pleasurable to watch in weekly instalments because the main plot line is dragged out somewhat. But in many ways this is the whole point. Conviction is about the psychological effects of an event on all those people tied into it. The end result is more thoughtful and thought-provoking than the average thriller.

I've watched this, and I've got to say I don't agree with the rave reviews this seems to be getting.

It tries to be (and succeeds in being) quite gritty, but that doesn't automatically make it good. In terms of tone and procedural style police drama, it's very similar to Prime Suspect. Where the reviewer who compared it to the "Constant Gardener" was coming from I don't know.

While I accept that TV is escapism and you've (often) got to suspend your belief a little, for something that's essentially a serious program, I found one aspect of this series so totally ridiculous that I nearly gave up (I won't spoil it). It was only because it was well acted and scripted that I stuck with it.

It's alright. I watched it, I wasn't bored and it did have it's moments; but NYPD Blue, Morse, Homicide or (the better episodes of the aforementioned) Prime Suspect, it isn't.

This is simply an amazing series, 6 hours of riveting, compulsive viewing. Originally broadcast on BBC3, this is simply too good to miss. For once, British TV has taken the lead from the US, where shows like 'The Wire' have shown us the way forward. Superbly written and flawlessly acted, this is a must-view. It is spellbinding from beginning to end, and even more impressive when you realise that the major event that the series focuses on happens in episode 1. I wondered how it would keep going without becoming repetitious for the next 5 hours, but I needn't have worried. Masterful drama, and the ending is as devastating as it is inevitable.
Spoil yourself, watch it! You won't be disappointed.

Definitely liked it but was really irritated by the apparently lazy attitude to work and competition that did not promote the business they were engaged in. However, the dialogue between the offending individuals was clever and entertaining. Amazingly it all seemed to turn out in the end.(tongue in cheek). Will entertain comfortably but not outstanding.

I loved this programme when it was on the telly, I stayed in every Saturday for 6weeks to watch it, it was that good.

The story line was excellent, gripping and plausible. The casting was perfect with every one acting their roles fantastically each making their characters really believable and watch able. The actor Ian Puleston-Davies is one of my favorites and he doesn't disappoint in this. I love this so much and I want every one to watch it and love it too!!

I have met Ian Puleston-Davies since I watched this and told him how much I loved this, he told me that this was the proudest piece of work he has done and considering he was in Alan Partridge is one of the funniest episodes is saying something!!

Watch it and love it!!

Like some previous reviewers I am somewhat surprised by the rave reviews and the 4 to 5 star ratings dished out. This is, or it seems, a good script and storyline. I have stopped watching it part way through the second chapter so I can't comment with authority on that. The programs major downfall is the editing. In my humble opinion it seems as though the director and editor have just graduated from film school and have tried all the fancy tricks to jazz the program up to make it trendy, for whatever reason that pocesses them at the time of post production.
The best anaolgy is this; consider a book, a good thriller, well thought out and well written and a riveting storyline....then just imagine if someone kept all the chapters in order, but cut out the pages in each chapter, shuffled them up and stuck them back into the book....that is exactly what this program is like...it is quite fustrating, chopping back and forwards through time with an unsettling sound score to boot, together with too much unsteady camera work...that is fine in small doses, and to enhance a mood or effect, but in this case it almost seems as though the tripod budget was siphoned off for increased editing fees in the cutting room....

It is a shame because when I see that icon, the BBC logo, I am used to being treated with memorable entertainment...
