An unexpected pleasure
...Maybe 'pleasure' is the wrong word, but I've been thoroughly gripped by this series, despite - or perhaps because of - the characters' deep dislikability. Everyone from the child at the centre of slapgate (by God, was he asking for it?) to the utter cad who administers the slap, and all points in between, is pretty ghastly but they're all superbly played by a brilliant cast, served with a superb script. Great stuff.
