None of it rings true. The cast is high-calibre – the aforementioned actors have done excellent work elsewhere, as have the likes of Mark Lewis Jones, Michelle Fairley and David Bradley, and Dirisu is good – but they’re lumbered with terrible dialogue.

An unholy combination of EastEnders and The Raid that never quite gels.

A stylish, homebrewed gang drama that takes its cues from the American classics, while bringing all the full-on, close-combat hurt you’d expect from the makers of The Raid.

One point it clearly makes while watching from home in the middle of a global lockdown: your family could always be much, much worse.

The opening episode of this grisly drama about a crime family and their multitude of rivals might be more human flesh than fleshed-out characters, but it promises to be a wild ride.
