So someone has been rendered paraplegic and another's
had a partial limb amputation and they're carrying on as normal with no PTSD or lifestyle adjustments ?
Then there's the character of Jodie, a limp lettuce and wholly unbelievable as a detective.

I'm unconvinced. Mercurio is not on top of his game with this storyline. I'll still check-in next week however although I have no memory of series 1 so it's significance is fairly meaningless to me.

Up to episode 2. Brilliant as always - probably the best contemporary (as opposed to period shows like Wolf Hall), dramas in years. Will refrain from posting further until I've seen the whole thing

Get a move on! Last one tomorrow so I like to do a bit of speculating without the spoiler tags.
The Happy Mondays were disqualified from a special edition of the BBC’s Bargain Hunt after Bez broke the show’s rules by artificially inflating prices, handing victory to Pulp.

I don't see why we should indulge you quite frankly.

This never happened when BCB, and the nation were entranced by Forbrydelsen (The Killing) or with Wolf Hall.

I don't watch [tv] that much on iplayer but have been enjoying LoD, even if I needed to catch up earlier on. To be fair, it has been a bit frustrating not chatting about it, it's bloody good stuff. Perhaps next time (if there is a next series) we could do a thread with spoiler warning where we can chat about it on an up-to-date basis. Maybe a second thread for a general non-spoiler discussion?

Just an idea.

I am beside myself. Who says American TV is better than British?

Well I was wrong about who Balaclava Man was but the guy I suspected who was entirely innocent when he first appeared was right up to his neck in it, as I thought.

And didn't Roz H pull another blinder in that last interview.

And CI ACC Creepy Paws got it.

Bloody ace.

A bit of detail about the board of photographs at the end.

Splendid final episode which simply zoomed by. Much better and more believable than the rather OTT climax to S3, imho, with lots of loose ends to carry forward.

Together with The Missing, one of a handful of truly world-class contemporarily-set shows on UK TV right now.

Apparently already been recommissioned for (at least) two more series. S5 will apparently be about Hastings who's performed the miraculous feat* of being both a catholic and a freemason.

Anyone out there remember Between the Lines from the early 90s which addressed similar issues and was also very, very good

* Well, it used to be, nowadays one suspects 'The Mafia of the Mediocre' will take anyone they can get

Right. It's the best thing I've seen in years.
