It picks up where it left off.
29 December 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

A calling card from a killer known as The Gambler is left with his only surviving victim. Boyd wonders if a copycat killer is picking up where the imprisoned killer left off.

The first full series of the show was outstanding, there is always a worry that a follow up will dip in quality, that is far from the case here, it's a brilliant story, enthralling, exciting, and slightly uncomfortable to watch. It's a gritty and intriguing watch, and boasts a terrific scene involving Mel and the prisoner, Rice.

Susannah Barker and Samuel West are both outstanding, he's menacing and incredibly believable, she is a bag of intrigue, you struggle to know if she's hiding something or scared.

Excellent. 9/10
