| It's an enjoyable series overall.
A difficult series to grade overall as the episodes are so varied. A shame it only lasted the single series as there was definitely potential with this format. Each story had a sting in the tale, a twist, each certainly kept you guessing right up until the very end. The high point was definitely Crimes of Persuasion, a brilliantly written and acted story, so much going on, two hugely charismatic lead actors in Susan Engel and Anthony Bate, the low point sadly being the finale Truth or Consequence which I found a little flat and quite confusing.

Those opening credits are so wonderfully 1970's, random shots of two Scorpions, accompanied by the sinister music. They aren't the best it's fair to say.

All of the stories are worth a look, and each keeps you guessing, I definitely would recommend, if only to see Crimes of Persuasion, which is a wonderful watch. 8/10
