“AUDIENCES don’t like to be treated as if they’re stupid.
“Sometimes I think we dumb things down and underestimate the intelligence of an audience.

“We want to work a little bit.
“And I think this asks that of the audience.”

A truly outstanding eight-part drama filmed and set in London written by The Bridge’s Hans Rosenfeldt.
With one of the most gripping scripts I’ve ever read.
