Based on the title and the photo of the lead character in a policeman’s uniform, I was expecting that this Netflix/BBC co-production would be something like a police farce like Rowan Atkinson’s The Thing Blue Line.
It’s nothing like that. It’s this year’s Broadchurch; just a crackling story told over 6 episodes about a crime that happens in the English countryside. It’s Fargo-esque at times, especially with how the crime unfolds.
After the second seasons of House of Cards and Orange is the New Black disappointed me, it’s easily my favorite Netflix series this year.
