Best Show on TV ever
26 July 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have just watched all the episodes of this amazing show for about the 5th time and it gets better with every view, Phil Daniels is truly mesmerising as Dunbar, really is the performance of his brilliant acting career, the writing is sublime, all the acting is perfect and how this didn't get a second series is totally beyond me,too close to the truth? BBC being blind (or as Dunbar would say, Blunkett's!) ? I just can't believe it was shelved after one series, it's one of the biggest mysteries of TV drama history, everything about the show is spot on, the music is bang on, the story lines impeccable, and once again the acting was just perfection, the casting was truly inspired .

Bring Back Outlaws, you know it makes sense ...
