As brilliant as Batman's villains are, they just can't hold their own in a Gotham without a hero. You'd expect Jim Gordon to bring some balance to the overabundance of nasty characters, but he does little more than snarl at the bars of his own cage with his tiny victories. Even Bullock, the most charismatic of the lot, is still plenty crooked and despicable for most of the season. The whole show is just a muddy tease of what a Batman series could have been instead of an antagonist origin anthology masquerading as a police drama.

This is one of the few TV Series where the second series is even better than the first. It has been called Celtic Noir with good reason and is often compared with The Killing. I enjoyed the latter but this surpassed it by far, and should now be able to stand on its own, without Mari's coat trying to vie with Lundt's jumper (which is frankly ridiculous). I found Series 2 to be far more Welsh in character: deep intense emotionality and brooding volcanic dark. The acting is superb and the stories are good. It's ... see more strange just how most of the lead characters are broken people: but isn't everyone? I found DS Sian Owens the weakest part, but she is up against the others' immensely strong characterisations so perhaps never stood a chance. Prosser is perhaps the most original and mystifying character I've seen looming up from the shadows onto our film or TV screens. I can't make up my mind if he's good or evil. There is a certain amount of minimalism in the acting: Mari's silences and her painful inability to relate to her daughter with ease. (How like life!) The photography is also superb, although I admittedly sometimes got tired of viewing most of it through a gap between door posts. This is a must see for anyone who likes good acting, good TV and good stories.
