Gritty stuff brilliantly acted,
This review is from: Between The Lines : Complete BBC Series 1  [DVD] (DVD)
Great characters and storylines. Each of the three main players has a distinctive place and they grow into their parts over the first four episodes. Tom Georgeson's Harry Naylor has a brilliantly dry laconic wit which isn't bettered in any police series. "Can I ask you a question, Harry?" says his boss. "As long as it's not geography..." replies Harry. Brilliant! Mo Connell's response to the outcome of the team's investigation into the death of a police inspector's wife is a harrowing, captivating moment, brilliantly acted.
A rare insight into the delicate balance between catching bent coppers and avoiding frustrating the honest ones with all the power plays and politicking in the background. Great stuff. Buy it or rent it... you'll love it.
