Editorial Reviews

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brutal dark thriller Irish cop with a smart mouth. December 26, 2010
Format:DVD
Expect blood, violence, and repulsive scenes. Yet they're compelling. Series 3 is MURPHY'S LAW in 6 episodes that could almost stand alone, yet definitely carry on a main plot with continuing cast. Murphy uses procedures as illegal as those used by criminals he is undercover to nick. He's not a cop you'd want on your local force. James Nesbitt ("Bloody Sunday","Cold Feet","Walking Ned Devine") IS DS Tommy Murphy (Irish cop with haunting past) who takes body abuse frequently, mind's a step ahead of low-life he investigates, and he's funny with a smart mouth, which gets busted regularly.

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.

Episode details:
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.

2 DISORGANISED CRIME
Murphy continuing undercover to nail Callard is arranged to meet the McGeechan bros in Yorkshire who want assault weapons. Ellie (Georgia Mackenzie) wife of the 'hit', is the bros sis. Heroin is the reason for gun needs and Murphy has much to infiltrate and stop.

Having viewed Seasons one (1) and two (2) of this superb British crime drama, I, of course, purchased Season three (3). My god, Season three (3) is really some excellent, intense wonderfully directed and acted T.V. viewing. Although some scenes in this six part (each part running over a hour) are horrific, I could NOT look away from the screen. Murphy (played breathtakingly good by James Nesbett--he is so good!) seems, to me, to be even tougher, this season, as an undercover cop/detective posing as a "hit man" and infiltrating the crime worlds of some very nasty crooks. Of course, he has to be very tough to survive as an undercover cop in the worlds of the criminals that are portrayed in the six very gritty and intense stories in Season three (3) of "Murphy's Law" All of the six (6) parts on the two discs involve Murphy's attempt to catch a particularly ruthless cop killer and drug dealer, Murphy has to really go very "deep" into the very dangerous underworld of some very dangerous criminals putting himself, at all times, in mortal danger.

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.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fierce Justice July 26, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For connoisseurs of crime/suspense drama, this season is over the top great. James Nesbitt's creative direction propels the show to another level. "Murphy's Law" wastes no time on theatrical evaluations of criminal psychology. It's a shame they dropped the Irish priest friend, a great character and gentle ballast. This is a hard intelligent romp, snappy and tight, with crisp writing and great momentum. Typical Murphy: "What do you get if you cross an insomniac, an agnostic, and a dyslexic? Someone who's been up all night wondering if there really is a dog."

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.
