A maverick Irish cop takes on the London crime world
"A terrific performance"--San Francisco Chronicle
"Outstanding series"--The Mirror (U.K.)
Uncompromising Irish cop Tommy Murphy (James Nesbitt, Cold Feet, Millions) regularly puts his life on the line, going deep undercover with criminal gangs and battling his own demons. In Series 4, Murphy allies himself with a vicious hoodlum to bring down a drug empire. He also struggles to take care of his mother, who has Alzheimer’s disease and no longer recognizes him. When two fellow undercover officers go missing in Series 5, Murphy resolves to find them, despite foot-dragging by his superiors. His search mires him in a world of human trafficking, prostitution, and murder.
Nesbitt gives a riveting performance as the "hard-boiled, hard-hearted hard case" (The Glasgow Herald, U.K.) in a role written especially for him by novelist Colin Bateman (Divorcing Jack). In the final two series of the hit British crime drama, Murphy is at his darkest and most tormented. Has the job finally become too much for him?
BAFTA nominated for best drama serial and seen on BBC America
