Really enjoyed this! Enjoyed the twists and turns.
This presented a very different take on revenge and from a lawyer no less. Well acted and well written. Liked it so much when I told my wife about it she said she would have probably liked it (normally she is not as big of a fan as I am of British shows) so I decided to buy it and watch it again with her.
Loved it ... Watching again!
I love David Tennet ... And this showcases his amazing acting talent ... I can't recommend this enough ... If you like British mystery... You can't go wrong with this show ...
