I saw this back in 2005 when it first aired and I was absolutely amazed by it. Tennant was chilling as Brendan Block and nothing at all like 'The Doctor' he is so well-known for portraying. His character is a genuine bad guy and Tennant shows exactly why he is such a good actor. Kate Ashfield is also brilliant and even reduced me to tears at certain points.
It's great to see this finally released on DVD, 3 years after its air date, and it is a must-buy for anyone. One of the best dramas ever shown by ITV.

I watched this when it was aired on terrestrial TV and absolutely loved it. I have raved about it to my family so much, I just had to purchasse a copy to be viewed over the Christmas period.
BRILLIANT! - Just do not read the blurb on the back of the DVD. It will spoil your enjoyment.

I bought this only because I was curious about Tennant's other work aside from Who. I had seen a clip from YouTube and was delighted to discover it was a thriller. Acting wise, I wasn't disappointed. All the characters are unlikeable and unsympathetic which comes across very well. From the obvious villain Block to the less than innocent Cotton. Tennant is hair raisingly evil and unlikeable, yet dangerously charming.

Unfortunately, that's where it all falls apart. The story is implausible and insulting, especially to those who work in law enforcement. The production values are rock bottom low-- I'm not expecting HD, but this looks like cheap dv. The way they handled the subplot of miranda's brother is also clumsy.

As for the DVD itself, the packaging is acceptable for the price. There are no extras whatsoever. Understandable for such a tele movie but disappointing nonetheless.

What lets this story down big time is the absurd ending but all the way through the interactions between the characters is implausible. Having said that, the acting is superb from all the cast and this is the only reason that makes it watchable. For David Tennant fans (like me) see if you can rent or borrow it - otherwise you'll only watch it once and it will gather dust on your shelf.

i'd suggest you ignore (or at least reserve judgement) by other reviewers along the lines of 'best crime drama ever'.etc gushed over this serial.
I love good crime dramas like Endeavour, Minette Walters 'The Sculptress', etc etc,. sadly, good actors aside, this production beggars belief. I found myself increasingly irritated with the almost pantomime like ('look behind you') holes in the plot.
For something like this to work, it needs to retain credibility - & i'm sorry but this serial doesn't, I truly wish it did, if only to justify the viewing time!.

David Tennant in one of his very best roles and the female characters were superb as well. Loved it.

I enjoyed this dvd, I like David Tennant either when he is playing a sinister character like this one or a dynamic Dr Who. The cast was good, the plot could have been a bit more unpredictable but it isn't glaringly obvious and there is room for guessing. If you enjoy this try the Politician's husband which is another suspense film.
