    This is a cool show, though I wish there were more than 6 episodes. I was a bit surprised how few people seem to know about it.

    I bought the DVDs of the show last year and thoroughly enjoyed the series. Hopefully the 2nd series will be just as good as the first.

    I I just discovered this as well. I can't understand why I'd never heard of it - I think it is superbly well done with well drawn characters and thoughtful plots. I too was disappointed that there were only 6 episodes in the first series, but from what I've seen in the 1st episode of the 2nd series it was worth the wait. Here's hoping we get more than 6 episodes this time round!

    I've just found out that the 2nd season is on its way. Great news! The show is really very very good!

    The second series DVD set is also being released next month (12-Oct) so I'm looking forward to seeing it then. It's a bummer that so many of these shows don't make it to the States. The only way I find these shows is looking at UK ratings and searching Amazon.co.uk for similar shows.

    The first season only having6 episodes is annoying but it is a common UK thing. They only do 6 episodes for the first season of a new show. The show is great though, surprisingly unknow though. The second season is just as good as the first.

    Along with Wire In The Blood, this is one of my favorite British shows. I only hope it doesn't get cancelled. I'm already waiting for Season 3!

    I'm not sure if the series will be renewed or not based on the final ratings they got (I think it was quite a bit down from the first series). I guess we'll have to wait and see (but then again it is ITV which has cancelled quite a few good shows of late including Wire in the Blood).

    As to the six episodes, I rather have a limited number of high quality episodes rather than a full season of 22 with duds in them (as there always are).
