Trivia

The BBC cancelled the last episode of Good Cop after two Manchester police officers were tragically killed whilst on active duty. The last episode was to feature an attack on a female officer which were seen to be close to the real life police murders. The final episode was due to be aired the same week as the killings.

Good while it lasts, but incomplete
21 November 2018 | by LCShackleySee all my reviews

We watched this show with our Britbox subscription. The first two parts were each 100 minutes. Britbox wanted to charge a fee to watch the 3rd and 4th episodes (each only 50 minutes), but the descriptions matched things we'd already seen. If you are a Britbox subscriber, don't get caught up in this show because you will be seriously let down by plot threads that are unresolved.

I gave this a 7 based on what we saw, but I almost gave it a 2 based on the frustration of an unfinished story. The trivia says that the BBC pulled the plug on the last installment...really? It would have had to be "in the can" since they were running on successive weeks. So what happened to the conclusion? I guess we'll never know.
