It is on many lists as among the Top Ten British cop shows. I can see why it is so addictive: fast-paced, strong acting, and page-turning endings (anybody out there know the video equivalent of page-turner?). In the two episodes I watched, the violence was relatively minimal (when compared with similar shows) and I had to turn my head away twice from a gruesome scene. I’m not recommending it yet–need to watch more, but if anyone else has, please chime in. More episodes will tell if my vague sense of a racist undercurrent is accurate.
