Excellent story. Good acting. Was great binge material for the long weekend.

Initially interested, but the storyline got more and more boring and ridiculous. We fast forwarded a lot just to see the end. What a waste of time.

Strong acting with an interesting evolution to the story line. Very good reflection of a strong woman contesting a complex challenge, with the forces of good eventually prevailing.

Excellent 2 disk series which takes place in Ireland.

A wonderful, well-made, fast-paced Thriller Mystery! Superb acting!
Although, the main character's constant revelations what she knew to the very people she learned were dangerous, was dumbfounding! 'Does she have a death wish?' For a supposedly very smart lawyer, these actions were not terribly bright!
Still, a thiller well-worth watching! Great cinematography and views of Dublin!

Like some of the unfavourable comments posted, this is a very poorly written script. The story is simple: greedy pharmaceutical company tried to cover up wrong doings. But it might be too big a story for some inexperienced script writers and trying to stretch to 6 episodes. The result is out of control. A number of supposed to be secret meetings surprisingly always held in the public, as if they had no idea what kind of enemy they are facing. The widow never forgets to confront her enemy every time as soon as she digs out some new evidence as if she worries that her enemy does not know how many cards she has. Towards the end, the feature is giving me an impression that I am watching a Walt Disney movie rather than a thriller. Cassidy does not have a very pleasant looking face to start with. Of course, good actors do not need a pretty face, look at Jack Nicholson, Kristin Scott Thomas, however, Cassidy's over exaggerating expression is hard to bear for 6 episodes. Maybe this is partly the fault of the director. Yes, grieving widows have the right to be angry, but over a course of two weeks and with everybody, friends and enemies? As a lawyer herself, I wonder if she would behave the same way in a criminal court. If Cassidy does not soften her facial expression, she would find her career limited if not shortened.

so unrealistic! and why are all the Canadian actors so unattractive?

Intriguing plot. Solid acting. The accent on the Canadian cop was unusual and annoying but otherwise a good mystery.
