I found this series quite by accident last year (about the third episode) so managed to get caught up on bbc iplayer.
A good series with a some twists and turns. I thoughly enjoyed it, hopefully you will too. I was hoping that they had done a second series, but not sure whether this came about.

I started watching this from episode 1 2013 (Pretty sure it was then) Went overseas 2014 whilst it was still on air thinking I would watch it on channel 7 catch up as it was channel 7 that produced it, when I got back I was horrified to find it had been axed........

Some avid members on fb got together and saved the program now being made by Foxtel, but channel 7 still own the rights.
For anyone interested the site on fb is a closed site but we do welcome new members, now over 6000 and still growing.

I really enjoyed the first two series. I was not sure if I would considering the fact that Channel 7 advertised this ad nauseum every ad break for months prior to it's release, and that usually rings alarm bells for me.  ;)

I was very disappointed when I discovered that the series had been axed, and now that it is back on Pay TV only (and I don't have Foxtel), that is quite frustrating. :(

Highly recommended viewing.

PS. Trish, can I ask if the third series is as good as the first two?   :)
