Why did this end?
Arghhh! I only just discovered this by trawling through BBC Scotland and was intrigued as I love crime drama. This was absolutely brilliant over four episodes and finishes to give us ample plot lines to continue. Why oh why oh why do we have no more as relationships are just building? The main characters are superbly profiled and the tension and subversive battles during the miners strike of the 80's and beyond is brilliantly portrayed. Shock of the new overlaps with the old tradition and like two juggernauts collide. It's fantastic stuff but so, so brief. I suppose the argument could be that it's fitting as it exploded with so much verve and power that it needed no more. I'd not read any of the books this is based on but will search them out as I'm completely hooked. Just sorry this was all done on TV eight years ago and I missed it. Well done to all involved and to BBC Scotland for reshooting. Pure class!
