From the BAFTA award-winning writer of 'Skins' and 'This is England '86' comes a compulsive thriller exploring the dark underbelly of the British countryside. When 14-year-old Cal is found murdered in the small town of Overton, the lives of his friends change forever. During the police investigation old loyalties are stretched to the limit as dark secrets threaten to surface, secrets that could tear the friends and their communities apart.
The drama students who fill every role are keen, put a lot of energy and emotion into their roles but are not really ready for the big time. The plot is like a drug fuelled Eastenders, utterly unrealistic and implausable. I became so disengaged with this intense drivel that I only watched the first episode, may be it got better.

Flawed plot partially saved by some good performances

Initially your very intrigued by the plot and the characters but as the drama unfolds you find yourself disengaging from the narrative. There are some charismatic performances Ruth (Yasmin Paige) and Tina (Charlotte Spencer) that keep you watching but ultimately the holes in the plot and repetitive cinematography (lot's of walking through fields) take there toll on your enjoyment.
