It can never be too much of a coincidence that in times of deep disharmony, of scaremongering and deep fear biting at the ankles of those immersed in watching world events, that a television drama, even of the murder/crime genre, can take you back to the roots of the nuclear power debate and show just how close such thinking can wreck the environment and kill thousands of people if there was an accident or act of sabotage.

The British gangster drama, whether on television or in the cinema has never really captured the days of Brighton Rock with Richard Attenborough and William Hartnell or the fantastic The Long Good Friday with the much missed Bob Hoskins    and the excellent Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Since those days of cinematic greats the genre seems to have become too safe, it has waved a white flag in surrender to its American counterpart.
