Editorial Reviews

A maverick Irish cop takes on the London crime world

"Clever and unsettling" --Entertainment Weekly
"Outstanding series" --The Mirror (U.K.)

James Nesbitt (Cold Feet, Match Point) returns as undercover cop Tommy Murphy in this action-packed crime drama. In Series 2, the stakes are higher, the stories grittier, and Murphy even more tormented. He takes on six different personas as he hunts for a serial killer, investigates a young officer’s death, joins an Interpol investigation, tracks down the truth about a biotech laboratory, solves a suicide in a convent, and has the chance to exact a very personal revenge.

"Nesbitt acts the hell out of the lead role" (San Francisco Chronicle), written especially for him by novelist Colin Bateman (Divorcing Jack). Death holds no fear for Murphy; the worst already happened when the IRA murdered his daughter years ago. He masks his troubled past with his Irish charm and wisecracking demeanor, but his demons can’t stay buried forever.

As seen on BBC America.

5.0 out of 5 stars SERIOUS CRIME AS COMPELLING AS SET ONE March 3, 2010
You will find it hard to take your eyes away, even with all the blood & violence because of the intriguing stories and action. Murphy (James Nesbitt), the wild Irish copper, who sometimes reacts in a rather volatile fashion, yet experiences personal mental anguish over his daughter's murder and his own part in that past event. Now in London, he serves as an undercover investigator in all kinds of situations, playing whatever lowlife role is needed, and so convincingly, but not always by the books. This covert series is unrated but very adult, with violence, blood, earthy language, nudity, and the disturbing life you'd expect to see the undercover cops enter to find the lowest of criminals.

DS Tommy Murphy (undercover cop with a haunting past) has a rugged body that takes abuse frequently, a mind always a step ahead of the people around him (be they the low-life he's undercover to investigate or other coppers), and he's funny. He has a smart mouth, quick wit that generally opens with a biting comment at just the wrong time, getting himself a fist or other injury, or when he's getting close to a romantic moment, which usually ices all inspiration.

Carter (Del Synnott) another copper, is a regular as is Father McBride(Mark Benton) an old Irish friend of Murphy's who tries to help, but can compound a decision. Clarke (Sarah Berger) is now the leading female cop.

All 6 episodes come with the available SUBTITLE option, which also helps those who struggle with the thick Irish brogue of Nesbitt. It's a strong accent but quite lovable.

Non-spoiler details of individual episodes:
1 JACK'S BACK DI Guthrie (Claudia Harrison, a regular in Series 1)is stabbed to death while doing a covert homeless gig.

5.0 out of 5 stars BLOODY BUT STILL DELIGHTFUL May 12, 2010
Verified Purchase
I fell in love with the "Murphy's Law" series in its season one waiting anxiously for the next season and here it is.

Although I found season two far bloodier than season one; my admiration for the series remains very high. The program retains its original premise--Irish undercover cop (played wonderfully by James Nesbitt) goes undercover into the world(s) of some suspected thugs or of some persons doing some bad stuff in order to gain information regarding a particular crime or unpleasant situation (such as a murder or kidnapping.) in order to eventually make an arrest or to prevent another crime or murder from happening. Season two maintains its high standard of highly interesting and well directed episodes with great acting by all involved especially James Nesbitt. Nesbitt is simply fabulous as Tommy Murphy who is "full of hysterical one liners" (while carrying out some gritty undercover police work and always putting himself in grave danger and carrying inside him a the deep dark burden of his child being killed).

The writing is also so very good in this season. So if you like me have a little trouble understanding an Irish accent use the subtitles. Believe me, you don't want to miss one hysterical line that Nesbitt delivers. It is really Television at its very best.

Please note, the episode titled "The Group" is a real stand out. James Nesbitt gives an outstanding performance. To me, very worthy of an Emmy award for "outstanding actor". You'll have to see it to see what I am talking about.

Product was in good condition with no problems. I would recommend product to anyone who likes gritty police dramas. These are British in nature however the main character is Welsh. Dialects of the characters can be a problem. An entertaining gritty police drama.
