Series 1 was so good it was almost inevitable that 2 would be less good. The plot is, if anything, more interwoven, complex and compelling but the acting of many of the supporting cast is poor. As I type I notice that there are 4 Directors, 3 of whom were not involved with Series 1. 4 directors! How does that work? Maybe this has sapped the acting of some of the middle grade actors. It remains a series which is difficult to pause and I had to watch into the small hours to see the resolution. This is a series 2 where the plot hangs on the previous series.
