Storyline

Young Detective Constable Anna Travis joins the team led by D.C.I. Langton to investigate a series of gruesome murders of young women, which first began eight years previously. All the victims were prostitutes and all killed in the same way. Then a seventh body is found but this is the corpse of a student, though a vital piece of evidence links her death to the others, involving a house in Manchester where Alan Daniels, a popular young actor, grew up. Anna goes undercover to get to know him better but finds herself getting emotionally involved. Written by don @ minifie-1

...there's one that keeps you interested, but what they did with her is not enough
19 July 2016 | by bjariasSee all my reviews

There are so many series just like this one.. so why watch. Most times because you come across characters that grab you and you want to know more... story-line, if not terrible is secondary. Problem is in this series no one grabs you. Yes, the attractive redhead is a major draw, and had they given her some more 'life' it might have drawn us in to a much greater degree. But here you have one of the most sensual actors very near her prime, and that attraction is almost totally wasted. Sure they were going for reality, but in real life that's pretty boring. Add some human interest drama into the mix and you have a completely different dynamic. Not to say it would be anywhere near a guaranteed hit, but it would have had a much greater shot at being more interesting.
