This drama was amazing. The last episode was pulled from TV due to a tragedy that occured in Manchester, and I was kept dangling to see it. At first, I was disappointed with the ending as it didn't seem to finish off the story - there were so many un-answered questions. Now I see that this is the beauty of it. Such a powerful ending that has left me thirsty for more.

I really hope there is a second series of this, it would be possible. This was such an emotive, authentic drama which really portrays how many good citizens feel with modern day laws and policing.

This was brilliant, better than any film I have seen for a long time. Please make more.

The one thing I really dislike about the series is that it clearly ends with another series in mind, giving not even a bare resolution to any of the stories let alone the main one, and unfortunately it appears that it hasn't been recommissioned or the writers have decided to finish it there. That's really irritating and somewhat lazy, I don't need absolutely every little thing to be wrapped up neatly but it just doesn't function as the climax of a story.

That said, it's well worth watching and it's at a very reasonable price. Warren Brown is superb and although the main plot doesn't always have as much focus as it perhaps should, the 'slice of life' style is pretty refreshing. It's also nice to see Liverpool portrayed in a reasonably positive light, of course there's a lot of crime and violence in the show as there is in the city itself but it also conveys it as a decent place to live with mostly decent people.

Not as good as Line of Duty, and an annoying ending, but a good show nonetheless.

For plausibility, suspense and sheer compulsion there would be few if any police dramas as good as this one.

Every character and detail is carefully observed and weighted so that as the viewer you cannot help but be drawn in and want, and yet not want, to know what happens next.

The central character is a decorated PC who has a secret life as an avenger of the shocking evil done to his colleagues, yet he is also hiding in plain sight from the detective leading the investigation into the deaths of criminals that he causes.

Vengeance of this kind proves effective though never perfect since it, like everything else, no matter how careful and controlled is subject to the law of unintended consequences.

In every major aspect, this series is exceptional.

The depiction of Liverpool's people and places is unforgettable.

The writing is superb and the acting is amazing.

In particular, the main character is portrayed brilliantly by Warren Brown, who in his performance registers very little in terms of facial expression yet you see the shadow of all that happens to him pass across his face.

For the sake of everyone involved in creating 'Good Cop', it is a crying shame that because of events beyond their control this story will never be told in full, though at least there is room for viewers to ponder how it could all turn out.

We are left with so much to think about.

Not much joy in this tense and harrowing tale of a good cop gone bad - Warren Brown is excellent and a nice portrait of him and his father. Much left up in the air at the end, but after the plot twists, that's to be expected.

Which was slightly inconclusive esp as the BBC have pulled doing any more. Shame, presumably due to recent events: well, it won't stop them! It was a great series, really thrilling in a different sort of way.

John-Paul Rocksavage is a Liverpool based policeman whose partner is lured to an ambush and attacked while on patrol. The circumstance means John-Paul can't get to help him but does see the big wig criminals beating him. John-Paul is the Good Cop whose shown to look after his ailing father, stands ahead of the other more ladish policemen, is good at his job, treats the public well and getting things done. He's faced with a dilemma regrading the attack and the actions he can take.

We follow the road he takes, wonder what he's going to do next, how much trouble will he get in as the series title become more of a question. The question is enhanced as we learn pieces about his past personal life. It's a nice touch that as the series continues he's goes from being referred by his holy forename to variation on his surname, Rock or Sav(age).

The performances are good all round. The cinematography and style are excellent; nice to see great cityscapes of Liverpool. The script is good and direction. Confident enough to take it's time in places.

The series itself consist of four 1 hour episodes. It's a good solid series that certainly grabs the attention but there is little weakness with the initial attack; would a policeman let himself get in that position (there's not loads of these glaring questions), would suspicions be stronger? It's also slightly annoying that against my expectations this is obviously geared up for a second series as not everything is resolved. I hope they get the second series but that they also don't string it out too much and weaken / compromise the strong story.
