Nice to see this on SPL shelf since PBS doesn't have it ON DEMAND & who knows when it ever repeats. A series I enjoy, nice interaction between the female leads not so much as superstars, but believable women doing their jobs. I keep wondering how the dark haired one can be so messed up & do her job - wow, what a judgmental take on someone. She's very good at her job & a nice balance to the partner.

This is NOT just a "chick flick", unless you mean that there are a number of fine performances by women. It's a terrific police detective series that can be enjoyed by any gender.

This is a great show. The stories are not the best. These episodes aren't classic whodunits, but I really enjoyed the show anyway. The three main actresses, Suranne Jones, Lesley Sharpe, and Amelia Bullmore are fantastic!! Indeed, the whole cast (regulars & guests) is fabulous. Theses are very fast-paced episodes. The scripts are well written. The only issue I have with this series is the constant use of the "b" word. Anyway, the characterization of the three main characters is pretty good; it's realistic. The exception here is the character, Rachel Bailey, whose obliviousness in her personal life seems a little off. In any case, though, great acting and interesting enough stories. There's two very exciting, yet disturbing, climaxes at the end of the season. Highly recommended.

One of the better buddy detective series. Interesting episodes and good actors. Not a "chick flick" (whatever that means).

Talented Brit tough girls solve mystery's and deal with life's ups and downs at the same time. Their team work is admirable and their friendship real. This is a great chick flick.
