REVIEW: Line Of Duty (S5 E5/6)

Dearly beloved, we are gathered together here tonight at this grim breaker’s yard to mark the passing of rat John Corbett (Stephen Graham).

REVIEW: The Bay (S1 E6/6)

I’m always fascinated how series end themselves. Some go for the big twist and reveal, some answer a few questions but then set themselves up for a second series, and some just end with a bit of a whimper.

REVIEW: Line Of Duty (S5 E4/6)

If anyone out there thought last week’s episode had uncharacteristically hit the snooze button, this week’s is back to its solar plexus-punching, heart-stopping norm. The necessary lull in episode three was the pivot for the fast turn of events now hurtling in – and it also dispatched one of the outside favourites for the police…

REVIEW: Follow The Money (S3 E5&6/10)

Episodes five and six of Follow the Money are directed by Gustav Möller (recently much praised for minimalistic, intense and award-winning thriller The Guilty).
