Storyline

Prasad claims that Dryden wanted Tommy silenced as he was blackmailing him about Carly, hence the ambush. However the order was to spare Lindsay. Hastings charges Dryden for the driving scam but has insufficient evidence for the weightier charges as Dryden apparently proves that the last he saw of Carly was when he put her on a train. Kate is surprised that Steve seems to believe in Lindsay's innocence until he admits that he is purposely trying to gain her confidence to trap her. When she is shown to have accepted a proposal by a colleague to snare a child abuser she seems less innocent than she claims but is she really guilty of conspiracy to murder?

Season 2 is a much better season ....
10 July 2019 | by ronalamont-91472See all my reviews

I wish to give an update to my review of Season One. As others have stated, the show got into its groove and the plots of this season surprised us and were full of excellent twists and turns. I now appreciate Martin Compston in the role of D.S. Arnott. He gives a solid performance throughout this season and seems more mature. Keeley Hawes gives a riveting performance as DI Lindsay Denton ... even at the end her guilt or innocence remains unclear to me because of her superb subtle acting. All the acting was great and the only series weakness is the continuation to shoot it "reality tv style" with the operator, Ryan Douglas, really going over the top in the early episodes. Between his work and the editing, the camera often plays a more important and distractingly intrusive element than the acting in a scene. It begins to get more subtle as the season progresses and this makes a huge contribution to the appearance and professionalism of the show I'm my opinion. It's interesting to note that he is replaced in Season 3 ( he becomes the Focus Puller for the first three episodes) and a decision is made to shoot in a more traditional film narrative style which really makes all the difference to the overall production value of the show..
