I suffered the indignity of the first episode of this latest 10 part soap opera and in doing so watched every tired cliché retread in the book. If you have run out of lines in a police drama then just insert "I'll get uniform on to it!" or " Uniform are on it, ma'am!" or better still "I thought uniform was dealing with that!" The ma'am in question doesn't get on with her boss, she doesn't know if she'll make important family gatherings because she's got a big case on, A chap is sulking 'cos his dad doesn't understand him being gay, an office romance is about as interesting as watching a fart dissipate.
Add to that the appalling script and the melodramatic nonsense of the story and you are in for a rough ride.
It's... well, just bloody awful!
