4.0 out of 5 stars Police corruption, violence, sex and terrorism how could it fail?, 14 Feb. 2008
This review is from: Between the Lines: Complete BBC Series 1-3 Box Set (Exclusive to Amazon.co.uk) [DVD] (DVD)
A series based around police corruption, violence, sex and terrorism, how could it fail? Tony Clarke (Neil Pearson) is a senior police officer who has the job of investigating complaits against the police. Torn between his basic honesty,ambition to rise in the police service and the need to protect his own position, Clarke does not always come out on top. The bad guys, on both sides of the law, sometimes get away with it. Clarke is shown as neither a hero or a villian, just as a guy struggling with people who are not only often more powerful and ruthless than him, but often more inteligent. Clarke's problem is that not only has he be compromised by his job, but he cannot keep his month shut or his trousers on. As the series progresses Clarke becomes more and more involved with MI5 and is clearly out of his depth. The producers of the series having the courage to have as the hero and man who does not aleays win.

All in all a good series with good performances from Neil Pearson, Tom Georgeson as his right hand man Harry and Tony Doyle as his boss Deakin.
