Amazing flow in this series
21 April 2019 | by jarrodmcdonald-67550See all my reviews

Each episode has its own purpose and I can see them all fitting in very well so far in this series. I'm gripped and watching each extra episode is a reward of its own. Episode 5 here, is the "How do they cope apart, again?" episode and the nuance in mood and pacing that this production team has is amazing. The soundtrack has continued to impress me and has demonstrated considerable depth. The use of the inner monologue is used when needed as needed. Plus every side character is meaningful and the detectives are becoming more involved in the story as I'm becoming more involved in theirs. Cheeky Matt King (Super Hans) appearance for Peep Show fans
