i don't get it...whats the point of the show? in both series they haven't made a good arrest(each time its just circumstantial). their investigations are still open at the end of each season.
as far as the characters go we haven't seen any good behaviour from those who are investigating the alleged corrupt cops. they are short tempered,gambler,unfaithful(to the investigation as well as to their partners),...etc.I actually think there should be another Anti-corruption agency to investigate AC-12 unit.
only the character of DI Denton played by Keely Hawes looked to be a well written one.
I just finished the 1st of 4 seasons of this series which takes a dark look at British police work, which I found quite disturbing, for some reason. It portrays constables making choices based on the volume of paperwork it would generate rather than whether it would serve justice; Inspectors falsely lauded but generating results by manipulating stats, Commanders ordering their officers to falsify their reports to cover up fatal mistakes. The drama comes when a few principled and relentless officers, and an anti-corruption division, are thrown into the mix. Can they make a difference, right wrongs and hold the force accountable for justice? It doesn't look good... I gave this an 8 (great) out of 10.
Great show! Very well done.
