Did You Know?


Filming for the scenes at the fictional 'London Police Station' took place at the headquarters for the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) on Kingsway, London WC2. The external shots of the front of the police station were actually filmed in the service entrance off Wild Street which is at the rear of Kingsway. The police station is mentioned as being 'South London Police Station' but the real life building is based in the City of Westminster, which is north of the River Thames. See more »

Entertaining if flawed BBC crime drama
6 March 2018 | by TweekumsSee all my reviews

When an immigrant working for a pizza delivery firm is gunned down on a London street it initially looks as though it was a case of mistaken identity; he was wearing a helmet and hadn't been scheduled to make that delivery. When it emerges that the expected deliveryman had also been delivering drugs with the pizza that appears to confirm the theory. DI Kip Glaspie is determined to follow all possibilities though. The crime was witnessed by a woman who believes the killer could have been female; she doesn't want to give a formal statement though as she was high at the time and has over-stayed her visa so could be deported. We are soon shown that the killer is indeed a woman; she is also a captain in the army.

Given that the killer is identified at the end of the first episode this series is more of a why-done-it than a who-done-it. This central mystery is intriguing but many of the characters seem shoehorned in with some unlikely connections... the pizza was being delivered to the ex-wife of a Labour MP; who just happened to have signed the immigration papers for the witness, who is dating the female vicar he knows. Such coincidences are part and parcel of drama; other things are less forgivable. The worst flaw is the depiction of the military; soldiers in uniform when clearly off duty in public; saluting when not wearing berets or caps and a rifle range with a woods immediately behind the targets rather than a proper sand-trap... if the makers couldn't be bothered getting these details right what other details might they have ignored? On the plus side the cast contains some fine actors who put in solid performances. Most notable amongst these are Carey Mulligan, as DI Glaspie; Nicola Walker, as the vicar and John Simm as the MP. Overall, given the quality of the people involved I was a little disappointed with this; it isn't bad but could easily have been much better.
