This explosive drama, explores the relationship between 28-year-old Eddie, recently released on life licence from prison after serving 10 years, and his probation office, Paula returning herself from suspension from a previous case gone-wrong. With both characters dealing with the stigma of personal and public disgrace whilst trying to reclaim their lives and reputations, Public Enemies is a gripping, surprising and incredibly moving drama.
Well written British drama with excellent acting.

Public Enemies is a very strong piece of British TV drama. The subject matter is raw, gritty and rarely touched upon; the post prison trials and tribulations of a man convicted of the most serious of all crimes. The screenplay was superbly written leading to an engaging and compelling production that tugged the heartstrings. Each and every character in this series was well cast and flawlessly portrayed down to the minor roles - so no shortage of talent adding to the overall robustness. Anna Friel and Daniel Mays in particular excelled in their lead role performances truly capturing the depths of their characters. This is well worth anyone's time to enjoy a great story, well directed with great acting.
