The quality of acting and scripting in this show is phenomenal. Whilst each series seems to stand alone there is a running thread and so they are worth watching in order. Fabulous TV.

One of my current fav shows. Great acting, great story with many twists and great pacing.

avatar

Glad i was pointed to this show. Really well done

avatar

i don't get it...whats the point of the show? in both series they haven't made a good arrest(each time its just circumstantial). their investigations are still open at the end of each season. as far as the characters go we haven't seen any good behaviour from those who are investigating the alleged corrupt cops. they are short tempered,gambler,unfaithful(to the investigation as well as to their partners),...etc.I actually think there should be another Anti-corruption agency to investigate AC-12 unit. only the character of DI Denton played by Keely Hawes looked to be a well written one.

Absolutely fantastic series. Can’t wait for the next installment.

WOW!! Just... wow. This show is by far the BEST show on Tv. I can't belive they can jam so much information into one episode. Almost every episode ends with a major cliff-hanger and sometimes even a "didn't see that coming!!" Season 3 was a complete mind-bender.. They've just anounced that there's going to be a season 5 - can't wait and I haven't even seen season 4 yet. 12/10

Wow, great writing and the villains, wow i don't think I've ever hated them as much as they make you with this show.!! Great acting!!

One of the best British tv shows ever...fast paced, intelligent and quality acting!

Just finished the 4th season of this FANTASTIC series. Excellent cast complete with an exceptional season long, stellar performance in the role of a primary character. Edge of seat action, dizzying twist and turns, superb character arches. Just really fine, fine, drama. Unsurprisingly, I give it a 10 (exceptional) out of 10. P.S. it has been renewed for a fifth season! Can't wait!
