Episode 2: Before We Die

Summary

Hannah and her new partner, Billy Murdoch, start investigating the Mimica family, believing them to be responsible for Sean's murder. They discover that the clan are planning to smuggle a massive quantity of cocaine into the country. But when Hannah learns the identity of Sean's contact, she immediately wants to pull the plug on the investigation. Crime thriller, starring Lesley Sharp and Vincent Regan.

Review

Try saying the line “One hundred and fifty kilograms? That’s a lot of cocaine!” as dully as you can and you won’t match the delivery here from a minor thug in the drug-running storyline. That’s the slight catch with this Bristol-set crime thriller; there are parts that work well — those with Lesley Sharp as conflicted cop Hannah — and other parts that waft over the screen with the whiff of garden-variety nonsense. 
Will the Croatian drugs gang work out that they have a mole in their midst? Will one of them notice Christian’s incessant use of a burner phone to text the cops (ie his mum) with details of what they’re up to?
Back at the station, meanwhile, Hannah’s boss protests, “This breaks every rule in the book!” but effectively lets Hannah and her colleague Billy (Vincent Regan) carry on with their informant anyway. Disappointingly, nobody calls him a CHIS.
