Watched it and it was quite good, however it struck me in all these Guy Martins.... series he’s always a natural, that finds it easy to do the assigned task, regardless of what it isGuy Martins Hurricane flying (part 2) from Sunday evening, & part 2 of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birthright_(Star_Trek:_The_Next_Generation)
Watched it as soon as it came out,I think Adam Curtis is a genius !BBC iPlayer: "Can't Get You Out of My Head"
What's true, what's not, I don't know, but it makes interesting viewing.
I thought it was OK. We just go this not super bright cop getting super rich because being corrupt was enough to get rich he didn't need to be a mastermind as well. A few days before I watched a documentary on 70s police corruption in the City of London Police and the Met - operation Countryman etc. Struck me that was the reality then - corrupt cops didn't have to be super bright and if they got caught the Police establishment closed ranks because they didn't want to damage confidence in the Police. So in a way I think LOD got it right.Yes and No. Long-running series almost NEVER end very well. It's too hard to tie-up the loose ends and have an enjoyable hour of plot/tension - something has to give. I've seen a lot worse than that!
It wasn't the most exciting episode, but it had a sort of moral reality about it. Finding out Ted's "truth" was pretty good, I thought. They left us with the feeling that AC12 had made some things better, but you can't beat all the bad guys, at least not all at once. They're still up there, looking after each-others' positions of power ... <cue sinister music!>
We really should be grateful for many hours of best-of-british cop telly :-)
