These 2 detectives sat talking shite aren't filling me with confidence in our police force.

I just said the same thing to DH (he's a copper)! Dim-witted, irritating harridans. If I sat next to them at work I would want to gouge my own eyes out.

Just thinking exactly the same. Wittering on about shite and sounding a bit self-important.

NanaNina Tue 28-Jul-15 01:34:21

Totally agree! They are so irritating, especially the DC (dark haired one - forgotten her name) she's sucking up to the DS and yes leccybill so bloody self important..........bragging about how she'd "caught him out" in interview because of the timing..........and then after all that the Moriarty chap isn't charged with anything and McEwan is only charged with 2 offences, as 3 charges were dropped - didn't say what the outcome was either.

Liked the last series but won't be watching if these 2 twerps are the star turns.

I think last year different episodes featured different people investigating? But certainly came across like they'd decided he was guilty before the interview.

Oh I really liked them. The dark haired one seemed quite mumsy and they both came across as fair, in fact the dark haired one at one point seemed quite sad about the crap upbringing the lad had had. Also, they worked a 20hour shift!! I would be dead on my feet

The ex copper who is now the legal aid solicitor is a weird one. Fancy spending half your life trying to nick criminals and the other half trying to get them off!

ImperialBlether Fri 31-Jul-15 13:41:45

I thought the two women were absolutely useless. Yes, the dark haired one had a mumsy manner which might come in useful sometimes, but the thought of them being responsible for lowering the crime rate was pretty horrifying.

NanaNina Fri 31-Jul-15 16:42:27

I missed that the legal aid solicitor was an ex copper. I thought he said that the dark haired cop was an ex legal aid secretary! Did I get that wrong. Thing is they must have filmed for months on end for this series, and someone made the decision to show these 2 women, chit chatting about rubbish and being self important........DC is mumsy unlike DS but there's just something SO irritating about her - well both of them really, keep on stating the bloody obvious, and DC wasn't that good in interview - she did say she was confused and when the solicitor mentioned this, she denied saying it but she did.........was the legal aid rep legally qualified - I just had a feeling that he wasn't......he was pretty useless too.

NanaNina, yes, the dark haired policewoman used to be a legal secretary. I don't think the legal aid solicitor was an ex cop - he only talked about being a solicitor and expecting to act for that guy for years to come.

Those two women really played to the camera, particularly the gay woman going on about online dating - what the hell does that have to do with her job? It was very unprofessional.

that soplicitor has been on before and he is an ex cop and he specialises in career criminals and getting them off. he KNEW that lad was guilty -hence the toilet break-he could see that the lad was getting his lies mixed up.

They knew he was guilty because they know him of old. Even I know about colin moriarty just from watching the programme! he has been on it before!!!

it would put you off living in luton...

ImperialBlether Fri 31-Jul-15 17:10:22

I thought this series was in a different location to the last series. Are they in the same place?

gymboywalton Fri 31-Jul-15 20:11:27

No still luton

There was a previous from Hull, which irritated a lot of people.

ImperialBlether Sat 01-Aug-15 15:29:55

That's the one I was thinking about, Luvverly.

gymboywalton Mon 03-Aug-15 21:19:28

Anyone watching tonight?

How in earth these police people do this job I have no idea

VivaLeBeaver Mon 03-Aug-15 21:25:32

Horrible Isnt it?

chippednailvarnish Mon 03-Aug-15 21:27:27

Grim viewing...

Bunnyjo Mon 03-Aug-15 21:38:47

My friend is a Sergeant in the PPU - she has seen things that have given her nightmares and found the job especially tough after returning from maternity leave.

Tonight's episode is particularly grim, given the suspect's occupation as a gynaecologist.

VivaLeBeaver Mon 03-Aug-15 21:42:28

A bloke in our village got done for this. His daughters are similar age to dd. He went to prison and is back home now. His wife stood by him!!!

RifRaf Mon 03-Aug-15 21:57:50

I am finding this very distressing, just horrific.

RevsDeCub Mon 03-Aug-15 21:59:25

This is horrible. Honestly, I'm 34 weeks pregnant & was crying when he described what happens to a 1 yr old. I know it goes on but fucking hell its horrendous. Poor babies/children x

recall Mon 03-Aug-15 22:00:27

it seems like that chap is relieved to offload it ?

VivaLeBeaver Mon 03-Aug-15 22:01:46

I can't believe that teacher only got a suspended sentence!! Its a fucking disgrace.
