Detective Inspector Jonah Gabriel (Ejiofor) takes on his first case since being shot in a botched police operation that left his partner dead. The new case involves investigating the murder of recently pardoned, drug baron Harvey Wratten. On the other side of the criminal divide, Joseph Bede (Eccleston), a former associate of Wratten’s, is moved to make his own enquiries. As Gabriel, dogged by amnesia and suspicious colleagues, follows a complicated line of investigation and Bede becomes increasingly desperate to see through a massive drugs operation that will enable him to step out of the business forever, the enigmatic and ruthless Gatehouse (Rea) emerges from the shadows to bring the story to a shocking climax…

Just incredible, wonderful story and fantasticly directed, with epic actors in the mix,
The best crime thriller to hit British TV in years.
From Episode 1's crampt opening to episode 2's wide open finale, this series has gripped me and kept me on the edge of my seat. Everything from the title sequence music, the dialogue, the acting and the story keeps you glued to the set, guessing who is the good guy and where this will go. I have not been able to keep quiet about this show, everyone needs to know...Watch it...truelly a triumph of British Television.

Ever since the first episode I have been hooked! I have fallen in love with Rafe Spall's performance as Jay Wratten and it has given a chance for younger actors (and actresses.) to get a good break. It's the best drama on tv at the minute. :)
