REVIEW: Follow The Money (S3 E9&10/10)

Sorry for the delay. Let’s have a look at episodes seven and eight. The latest episodes of Follow the Money are shaking things up for just about everyone.

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

REVIEW: Follow The Money (S3 E3&4/10)

The 10 Best Crime Dramas This Week (Monday 4th – Sunday 10th April)

Here we go then. Hans Rosenfeldt’s first ever British-based crime series is upon us – a complex, twisty-turny eight-part thriller starring Anna Friel as the aforementioned Marcella. Elsewhere, the third episode of the astonishingly good Line Of Duty will no doubt wow us with all sorts of shenanigans, while there’s also an intriguing one-off on…
