Storyline

After a mistaken shooting during a counter-terrorist operation, Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott is transferred to AC-12, a police anti-corruption unit led by Superintendent Ted Hastings. Alongside Detective Constable Kate Fleming, they are assigned to lead an investigation into the alleged corruption by a popular and successful officer, Detective Chief Inspector Tony Gates. While Gates cleverly manipulates his unit's figures, DS Arnott questions whether Gates is being made a scapegoat for a culture of institutionalized spin, or is guilty of darker corruption.

Best detective show hands down
14 February 2018 | by bobou-513-708245See all my reviews

Probably too well done to be a smash hit. But this is surely the best detective show ever produced. The incredible twists and turns in the plot line will keep you glued to your screen. Absolutely brilliant script writing supported by perfect casting and acting.Simply, as good as it gets.
