Once again, James is electrifying as Nelly.

Far more nuanced and character-driven than many other entries in the genre.

James' triumph here is to create a cast of characters who are not great human beings, but who are believable and empathetic. The twists and turns of the narrative are completely gripping, but it is as a study in human frailty that Save Me really shines.

This is shaping up to be another quality instalment, and I admire James's reluctance to take the easiest path. This does mean that the question of whether anyone will find Jody, though, remains as open as ever.

The subject matter is distressing but never gratuitous. The focus is on the parents grieving for a lost daughter, and what to do with that grief when the news cycle and the police have moved on.

All the things I found outstanding about most of the last series: realism, naturalistic dialogue, attention to detail and confident silences.

There's a tricky tonal balance at the heart of "Save Me," which blends elements of a family drama, a detective series, and even a dash of a workplace comedy thrown in for good measure.
