| Based on a true story but even so, a not so likely and unrealistic 2 parts mini-series.
It's amazing and horrible that all of this actually really happened. But even so the story remains highly unrealistic especially towards the ending, I just couldn't believe how dumb and stupid the police were at the ending! Yes, there are some tense and good moments but not as many as dumb and unrealistic moments.

The story also uses a bit too many unneeded sideline stories about some of the main characters. It's uninteresting and distracting and even dumb at times.

The only reason why this is a watchable mini-series is because of Alun Armstrong that is fantastic as always in roles like these.

It really isn't THAT bad but there most certainly are better and more interesting English detectives out there to watch.

5/10
