Well done series with an interesting skewing of ambition vs family, ethics and feminism
29 December 2018 | by msghallSee all my reviews

Enjoyable series, tautly directed and well written. The acting is fine and concept of three episodes at different times during a 20 year career shows how a once-corrupt police officer ambitiously advances through the ranks at a heartbreaking cost to her family.

The lead character, despite being fraught with emotions not conducive to good policing, is nevertheless rewarded in her determination to 'get her man.' Morality and ethics questions abound. How many other cases did this detective tamper with? We don't really know and this show doesn't seem bothered by the character's dubious ethical choices.

Sadly, this provocative series is resolved in the most pat, convenient, audience-pleasing manner, almost making a mockery of some of the previous hard but engrossing choices confronting not just the characters but the viewer, too.
