    Very disappointing ending. Pity, as it started out great.

    It tied in nicely, but the plotline was a bit flimsy. Enjoyed it.

    Himself and myself recorded the series and just finished watching it. At the end we are wondering how it ever got to be aired. We're not sure whether the writing or directing was to blame but it was the awfullest series we have ever seen. The storyline encouraged us to watch, at the beginning it looked at bit like the Nordic series we have loved over the last couple of years. However it very quickly deteriorated as we questioned so many scenarios. Are we alone or did anyone enjoy it?

    It started off great but lost the plot half way through. Totally ridiculous ending.

    Good story but there was no connection to the lad at the start ..it was like i missed the first episode..
    How could a temp teacher who literally was there a day gain access to a students address..????
    Those long staring at nothing scenes seem to be anchored in Irish drama's...

    Exactly...surely the fathers first question before he refused her entry was .."how the fcuk did you know where we live"...or words to that effect...

    Note to producers...(too late i know) take the insurance and nct discs off the props cars....:P

    Missed that, though I did spot Paul Tylak as the social worker in the final episode.

    None that they ever showed, I think it's to be presumed that
    the brother was found, but the child never was


  • Registered Users Posts: 576 ✭✭✭ Jellybaby_1


    It was unusual that a body would not be found in a lake. In a river it would be taken downstream and could end up anywhere miles away.

    Trust me, if that's the only thing in this mini-series you find unusual (or unbelieveable) you'll be doing well
