Ironically, given its title,
is a little uneven. At times the Brighton crime thriller is all the things you’d want – tense, tricksy and liable to tie us in knots with its devious plot. But parts of said plot have had more holes than a seaside crazy golf course.
The good news is, things are now starting to gel nicely. That sharp-suited spiv Shay (Joe Absolom), who showed his true colours in the previous episode, is becoming quite a thorn in our heroine Nancy’s side. (Although, the bullet wound in her side, the one that everyone has forgotten about lately, appears to have healed up.)
As she tries to play all angles at once in the murder investigation, Nancy has one consolation. The local CID guy played by Noel Clarke, who has done little but scowl at her for weeks, is showing a softer side.
As police comb the haulage yard for clues, Nancy must hide her guilt from both a fraught Hayley and her colleagues, but realises she has left incriminating evidence at the scene. Newman mounts a risky armed operation to ensnare both Elliot and the truck, although events spiral out of control when Nancy goes unprotected into the lion's den - with unexpected and bloody consequences.
