Hell. I think age ratings are a bit different to what they used to be. This is only a 15 - as, to my amazement, is Happy Valley. God knows what you'd have to put in a police drama to make it an 18.
Plenty of T&A, gory violence and lots of swearing, including f-words. Murphy's Law should have been an 18 as that had some very disturbing and brutal moments. Quite an old show, but it was tough as hell and James Nesbitt gave a gritty, hard-boiled turn.
I don't think swearing seems to count for much any more. There doesn't seem to be anything off limits at all!
Er, OK series 2 . I did say I was ill and not up to doing much, so that's my excuse for binge watching!
Series 2 and I've been joined by Annie! You kept that quiet, Sam!

I recently watched series 4 and must say that it was just as compelling and provocative as the previous three. Thandie Newton was excellent as DCI Roz Huntley, more sinister and scheming than Keeley Hawes as Lindsay Denton ever was but she was also ultimately a victim of her own downfall and the ones who were pulling her strings. Felt sorry for the man that she framed for kidnapping and murder and there were still some brutal moments involving The Balaclava Man and one scene in episode 1 was very chilling involving a knocked out Huntley. Special mention must also go to Lee Ingleby as Roz's put-upon husband, a troubled family man who also ends up in the frame.
