The best character for me is/was the 'bequiffed' torturer, played by Paul Ready...hope he reappears!
Joey Barton moonlighting I thought!

Very clever very slick show. Really enjoyed it and great that Channel 4 are doing something you have to actually watch and absorb. Anyone scan the picture on the wall in Bejans flat?
I wasn't paying enough attention and am kicking myself now! what was the picture?

It looked a bit like a QR code.

I don't have the technology to scan those things, did it work for anyone?

I caught up with this last night, good but too much sadistic violence so will be the last one I'll watch, but I think it will do well.

All that effort to get the nation to switch to 16:9 sets and some twerp shoots a TV show at 2.35:1.

Nevertheless it was far more enjoyable than the routine drama series being pumped out on the other channels. I look forward to episode 2.

I thought the first half hour was more style over substance, but the last half hour after they were arrested was more interesting and the story started to come together a bit more.

I think Grant is the most interesting character so far.

About the music, I think it was specially made for the series.

All cool tv dramas should be shot in widescreen format. All soaps should be 4:3 as a reminder of their archaic base contents.

I recorded this and watched it a couple of days ago. And I'm gripped.

What on earths going on? Not got a clue, really.

But! Mad theory -

A bent medical organisation wants to deliberately introduce into the populace a 'vaccine' that actually infects and makes ill (terminally) all the people it's given to (Russian Flu vaccine anyone?). So they can then miraculously and extortionately sell 'the cure'. Thereby making a huge profit from human death and misery. Not that they care about that.
