“Mat Davidson’s compositions seemed entirely appropriate for problems that were wretched and seemingly intractable.” – Alex Hardy, The Times

“Neither Mat Davidson’s ambient score nor Steven Mackinstosh’s mellifluous narration could calm the viewers nerves. This was a good programme about a bad situation.” – Andrew Collins, The Guardian

“A valuable insight into life on the frontline” – Ellen E Jones, Independent

This excellent documentary makes you think more deeply about the problems facing the police today” – Sam Wollaston, The Guardian
