What was it about?

Toon cops kill murderer after he gets off on technicality. One of them then gets killed and his best mate is framed.

What to say if you liked it.

What happens when cops go bad and turn on each other.

What to say if you didn’t like it.

It’s not very likely is it, lads?

What was good about it?

• Excellent cast, including Trevor Eve, David Calder (always superb) and Orly Brady.

• Great script and it was well paced. We really enjoyed it.

• It was really about where to draw the line morally, and it made us think.

• We’re looking forward to the denouement.

What was bad about it?

• The turn of events described is pretty improbable, and the speed at which Trevor Eve became the bete noir was hard to believe.

• Not much else
