Refreshing and honest British cops!
8 November 2013 | by patherwillSee all my reviews

Two other reviewers have already run through the plot of this 'TV. Film' so I don't want to bore any readers of this review with unnecessarily having to re-read more or less the same details yet again. I call it a 'TV Film' because I saw it in one continuous episode on Spanish TV but in English - thankfully - so NOTHING was lost in the language translation as so often happens in these cases.I think this second-part was equally as good and as interesting as the previous one and disagree with one of the other reviewers completely. I found the writing, transferring it from book to screen first-class and the acting the same.The lead Olivia Williams who plays DS.Charlie Zailer is no raving beauty BUT there is something worldly about her that makes you understand what interests DC.Waterhouse-Darren Boyd who manages to retain his deadpan face throughout this film as in the first.The storyline is good,dead-husband,ex-wife suspect-her new lover suspect, another woman thrown into the pot-previous history involving parental abuse all adds up to an exciting mix? Veteran TV/Film actor Peter Wight plays bullying DI Prouse fantastically-I can't imagine much H/R in HIS station, and Eva Birtwhistle, Theo James and Emily Beecham add to what is an extremely well-cast affair.Well recommended.
