I watched this show after finishing Whitechapel and well because it's BBC.
I liked the style and the dark, grit of this show but Matthew Macfadyen’s 'Det. Insp. Edmund Reid' REALLY annoyed the shit out of me.
Just too much of a bumbling idiot and making so many stupid, rookie mistakes.
Other than that it has a good cast, aside from Macfadyen, and good stories.
Whitechapel is way better! I probably won’t watch a second season, unless they get rid of Det. Insp. Edmund Reid or he gets a personality change! :)
