A maverick Irish cop takes on the London crime world
"Eminently watchable" --San Francisco Chronicle
"Terrific" --The Guardian (U.K.)
"Tense and gripping" --The Observer (U.K.)
Taking on the biggest challenge of his career, undercover cop Tommy Murphy (James Nesbitt, Cold Feet, Match Point) poses as a hit man to bring down a London crime boss and cop killer. He goes deeper underground than ever, faking an assassination, putting his life at risk, and sabotaging a complex, costly police operation in pursuit of a bigger prize.
The story builds through all six episodes, each darker than the last, as Murphy walks the line between deception and detection. A man with a tragic past, he has already lost friends, lovers, even his own daughter. Now he’s in danger of losing himself.
In Series 3 of this hit British crime drama, "Nesbitt is a law unto himself" (The Guardian, U.K.) in the role created especially for him by novelist Colin Bateman (Divorcing Jack). Guest stars include Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds, Hunger), Mark Womack (Judge John Deed), Owen Teale (Island at War, Ballykissangel), and Michael Feast (Touching Evil). As seen on BBC America.
Top Customer Reviews
An early review warning: Not for kids; violence, brutal graphic scenes, upper-frontal views, language, every manner of crime. Yet there is comedy.
Best line: "What do you get if you cross an insomniac, an agnostic, & a dyslexic? Someone who's been up all night wondering if there really is a DOG."
This is gritty London crime underworld stuff; the disturbing life you'd expect to see the undercover cops enter to find the lowest of criminals. It is a thriller, fact action, BBC top cop drama. The Irish brogue of Murphy is strong but doable, and there is SUBTITLES to help if needed. Prepare to feel tense.
1 THE GOODBYE LOOK
Murphy undercover as gun dealer, meets Caz who works for crime boss Callard (Mark Womack-'Judge John Deed'). Murphy gets inside and accepts the kill-contract on Holloway.

Season three (3) is really superbly directed and acted with great scripts that had me "biting my nails".
(Be advised the scripts are so well written being full of humor and alot of "grown-up" dialogue prompting me to use subtitles to catch all.)
Season Three is an intense fantastic run, due to Nesbitt's superb story ideas and acting. Season Two was mired with the gratuitous loss of one of the leads and lesser stories. Throughout, Nesbitt inhabits the role of Murphy perfectly, stretched tight across the crucible of life. In Season Three, his indignation during the trial of a white-supremacist is a fascinating glimpse of a soul burning for justice, for clear parameters of right and wrong, a man who risks all that matters to him most. The friendship between Murphy and his cover-operative explores the twine of necessary trust, completely convincing. I've known fascinating aged ex-criminals, salt of the earth, friends with great stories, as well as law enforcement folks; this show actually understands the dynamics involved. Beware the dreadful Murphy's Law: Series 4 & 5. Nesbitt is also superb in the revival of Jekyll.

Not my usual series pick, but it was entertaining. I guess it is hard for me to bond with his character in the show.Published on April 13, 2013 by Mary
