One simply doesn't see better TV than this episode. Superb script, unpredicatablel but plausible story twists, great production quality and an amazing cast. Nicola Walker - what can one add? She is as good as it gets.
I am 59 years old - a voracious reader, and lover of high quality film/TV. As the decades rolled by I came to realise that European police procedurals are above the rest - with the odd exception like 'The Wire'. British TV - and French/Scandinavian/Belgian too - bring a grittiness and reality that are compelling. Hollywood - study what comes out from the other side of the 'pond' and learn. And no blazing guns.....and nobody with Hollywood 'work done' faces. For me, these days, American TV is what I watch if I cannot access anything from Europe. 'Breaking Bad', 'Sopranos', 'The Wire' and their ilk are too small a minority these days.Sad.
