  • The devil's in The Detail...

    Another episode, another layer painted on all the characters. I love the way all the characters are portrayed - the criminals have good sides, the police have their flaws. That's real life, a muddy grey instead of white hats & black hats.

    The humour is great in this episode too - from Prez with his unfortunate habit of shooting things (until he steps completely out of line), to Kima being wonderful, to Crutchfield's desk.

    Something tells me this detail isn't going to be as quick & easy as Daniels is hoping. I wonder why I get that impression?!
