James Nesbitt (Cold Feet) stars as Detective Tommy Murphy in this action-packed crime drama. Devastated by the death of his daughter at the hands of terrorists in Northern Ireland, Murphy is on suspension and falling apart… until his bosses make him an offer he can’t refuse. Now he’s working undercover in London, taking on the most dangerous cases offered to him. He’s a man with little left to lose…

Pilot Episode - Murphy’s Law: A team of undertakers are moonlighting as diamond thieves – and the bodies are beginning to stack up. Murphy goes undercover to infiltrate the team and discovers a sinister connection with Japanese heroin dealers. Electric Bill: When Richard Mooney is arrested on suspicion of being ‘Electric Bill’, London’s most infamous kidnapper, Murphy and Annie are in a desperate race against time to locate his latest victim. Mooney isn’t talking so Murphy goes undercover in prison to win his trust. Kiss and Tell: A beautiful serial killer is terrorising London’s business elite. Murphy goes undercover as a top financier and joins the same health club that the victims belonged to. Now he must date a number of beautiful and sophisticated women, each of whom might be the killer. Manic Munday: A top Irish snooker player is ordered to fix his next game – or die. Murphy and Annie go undercover to protect him – and uncover the sinister organisation behind the death! threats. Reunion: A top member of an east end gang is murdered – and London looks set to be torn apart by a bloody gang war. Murphy infiltrates the ranks of a rival gang and sets about gathering evidence against its leader. But as time starts to run out, and as tension on the streets reaches boiling point, Murphy and Annie find themselves on the front line…

Format: DVD
That series works on a simple but extremely effective formula. The first characteristic is that there is only one plot going on, one investigation, as opposed to most American, and even French, detective series. That enables the episodes to go into detail a lot more and delve into intricate elements of psychology or economic interest, especially since the episodes are about one hour and thirty minutes, twice as long as standard episodes of detective series.. The second interest is that crime is always stated as being some kind of business. And that is fundamental. We think of crime as being asocial or antisocial. It is in a way, but not because it wants to disrupt and destroy society, but because it plays the rules of society in order to get an easy profit out of it. Easy? Way of speaking. Fast for sure. The pilot episode takes us into the business of undertaking and shows how that business can easily become a cover for another deadly and lethal business: heroin in exchange of diamonds, or vice versa if you prefer. "Electric Bill" is beautifully wrapped up so that the first suspect will be revealed as the culprit but after a long hesitating line of exploration and digging out. But this serial killer is only someone who is preparing the big case with little ones so that he is sure the target will pay because he will be frightened. Serial killing as an efficient business procedure. "Kiss and Tell" is funnier because a spa center is transformed into a hunting ground for a female serial killer who is only getting a lot of money out of some rich men who are looking for sexual variety and killing them when she gets the real prize.Read more ›

Well, it always depends on what you expect, but even as sheer entertainment this first series is absolutely mediocre. The storyline far-fetched with an ending, that's never convincing. The acting is ok, but nothing more, photography uninspired and worst of all: the soundtrack is very bad - so very monotonous, it hurts. And apart from bad entertainment, don't look out for more, as there's nothing brilliant, daring or risky thematically.
For the brave ones: I've read after the not so good 2nd series it gets better, but I must admit, I'm too bored to go on.
