Review by Feef on 05/23/22 review stating Press
I have already seen this program when it aired on dailymotion.com which features British programs, daily as well as series, and I have to say it was EXCELLENT. Charlotte Riley rocks as an actor! I am hoping it will have another season as the first left us hanging the way it ended.

Absolutely gripping. . . .
Review by Newshound on 05/23/22 review stating Absolutely gripping. . . .
This series, about two competing newspapers in contemporary London, is as riveting as any murder mystery. Human beings are sometimes corrupted, sometimes destroyed, and occasionally enobled by their employment in the press or their exploitation by it. Especially relevant considering contemporary pressures on the news media on both sides of the Atlantic.
