When strong-willed DC Dinah Kowalska connects a body at the morgue to a group of murdered girls with Down's syndrome, Viv and her team begin the hunt for a serial killer.

This is a police drama written by a man featuring a lot of female characters. I was trying to figure out what was off with this series. The actors and the script.don't quite jell. Lead character is 5 ft 3 and small-boned and is running after perps in her nylon stocking feet. Lead actor also takes a teenager who is critical to an investigation into her home to live. Wha? These absurdities represent the show. There is a bit of raunch added, I'm not sure if this was an attempt at realism or what. Was nice to see larger women featured for a change. I wish the series well as it has so many female characters, but they need a different scriptwriter. Much prefer Scott & Bailey which was written and directed by women.

Only the Brits can come up with a police drama this quirky and fun to watch. Looking forward to Season 2 & 3.

Really, really enjoyed this murder/mystery series with a comedic twist. It kept me watching with the excellent writing, acting, and plot...is superb! Found myself binge-watching it as often as I could so I could finish it before it had to go back to the library. Am eagerly waiting for Series 2 and Series 3 to continue watching!

Excellent British series, series about a police department and a serial murdered, main police characters woman. If you enjoy midsomer murders, Inspector Morse, Inspector Lewis you will enjoy this series

This new series took a little while to get used to due to lots of English slang and the fact that some of the early episodes contain some ribald humor, but eventually the performances and drama won out. Good episodes with various crimes and one serialized thread of finding a murderer targeting Down's syndrome girls, carry the action. Interplay between the 3 female leads sparkles and keeps the viewer entertained. Only thing missing was an English slang dictionary, but one gets the point nevertheless. Also a plus is the catchy Irish-style theme music!
