4.0 out of 5 stars Does Series 3 need so many loose ends? 20 Mar 2014
By Antenna TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
After the opening hook of a violent ambush of police escorting a protected witness, suspicion falls on the only officer to survive unscathed, DI Lindsay Denton. Three aspects set apart the ensuing complex drama: the powerful, well-scripted interrogation scenes, the high quality of acting in which body language reveals so much about personalities and relationships and, above all, the skilful portrayal of Denton by Keeley Hawes, who tantalisingly convinces us by turns of her guilt or innocence.

Perhaps you cannot award less than four stars to a series with such power to grip millions of viewers, and to trigger such large-scale speculation as to who is guilty of what and why. I understand why the author wanted to leave what I think he described as loosely tied bows to pave the way for a third series. However, it seems unsatisfactory to me if people are still asking fundamental questions at the end because they are confused about exactly what happened, and, insofar as they think they understand, there appear to be flaws and contradictions. Apparently, Mercurio himself spotted a vital omission at the last minute, just in time to insert another scene, but there seem to me to be quite a few that he missed from the viewer's angle. It may of course help if, unlike me, one has seen Series 1. At least one would have the advantage of knowing more about some of the characters, such as dodgy detective Dot Cottan or disabled DC Morton who makes a sudden unexplained appearance.

I agree with the many comments and critics who feel that the last episode is a serious let-down - rushed and disjointed, with scenes included too obviously "to sew things up", yet often failing to do so.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warning: unbearably suspenseful 9 July 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I would wholeheartedly recommend getting seasons one and two together, which would work out cheaper than getting the two series separately. This is a superior police drama and thriller. Be warned, though, it is very suspenseful.

For me series one was excellent in every respect and I approached series 2 with the same high expectations. The action was there, the acting just as good and the script ALMOST as convincing. What let it down slightly was a seemingly rushed and unconvincing ending, with too many loose ends and unanswered questions.
The crux of the story was revealled in minimal flashbacks as if the writer had suddenly tired of the whole thing and it just didn't have the pace or breadth of earlier episodes. The complex private lives of the main participants were not addressed at all - perhaps a sign of series 3 pending!
Still it was enjoyable overall and if there is a series 3 I will certainly buy the dvd.
