It's not where your from, it's where your at
Starts on BBC 2 tonight.

Filmed over 2 years the BBC were given unlimited acces to a specialist Greater Manchester Detective unit as they attempt to stop organized crime groups (North Manchester, Salford and Moss Side) fighting each other to stop an all out gang war in Greater Manchester.

Looks really good and over 6 parts

Saw the first series a few years ago (it seems) and was brilliant.
Very dark and grim however.

Those ones based in Luton with the Bedfordshire police, 24 hours in custody, were very good as well.
Definitely cases of truth being stranger than fiction.

They're incredibly well made which along with the amazing detective work makes for compelling tv....no daft acronyms here...

Welcome to my world boys. Ive been a detective for 20 years. No wonder Im knackered
The contrast between fictional tv crime & real life crime is quite stark.

Nothing glamorous in these worlds.
Not sure how you can all constrain yourselves when provoked or threatened like was shown tonight.
Kudos.
