Run­ning in the shad­ows

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Eguide Television - LU­CAS TOWNSEND

THIS new se­ries sends view­ers down a me­an­der­ing path of sec­ond- guess­ing and dark ul­te­rior mo­tives as a dam­aged cop is called back into ser­vice and thrown in the deep end with UK’S big­gest crime lords.

Har­vey Wrat­ten is re­leased on a royal par­don from prison just 24 months into an 18- year stint for im­port­ing 200kg of heroin spark­ing sus­pi­cion from me­dia, politi­cians and po­lice.

He is gunned down, leav­ing an as­so­ci­ate, Joseph Bede ( Christopher Ec­cle­ston) the chance to cash in on one last deal for him and his wife ( Les­ley Sharp), who has Alzheimer’s.

De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Jonah Gabriel ( Chi­we­tel Ejio­for), crip­pled from am­ne­sia and mis­trust of col­leagues, must fol­low a shad­owy line into a world of pup­pets con­trolled by Glick­man ( Sir Antony Sher), the pup­peteer of the un­der­world.
