| ****excellent**** unique and memorable
The Daily Telegraph says 'extremely watchable' I found it addictive.

Up late on consecutive evenings watching episode after episode.

The plots, screenplay, humour, drama and acting are of the very best of anything the BBC has ever produced.

The first series contains nine single part stories each based on a different character in the community

The second series is formed of one six part story based around the central couple, Erik and Ann Shepherd.

Centred in Crete and involving intelligent themes in espionage, psychology and slow-paced thriller twists, this comes very highly recommended
