There is something really refreshing about watching a show, yet having absolutely no idea what the hell is going on.

If you’re confusing me with your thriller, then you’re doing your job well.

But then we are in the same situation as the characters who are lying their arses off every chance they get. Everyone of course, except Sophie Okonedo’s character. Oh Sophie…
This girl crush may be new, but it is real!

Maya Cobbina is pretty much what we all grew up wanting to be. Until we realised that life isn’t really like that.


And Adrian Lester is, well, Adrian Lester. More Hustle than Primary Colors, thankfully!
Let’s agree that the martial arts are keeping him looking well.

Also it’s nice to see 24’s Dennis Haybert on UK screens. Alongside a good collection of character actors.

It’s hard to say much when I’m trying not to give away any spoilers. What I will say is: ‘watch it’. It’s good, well-written British drama. What more could you ask for?
