Detective Sergeant Nancy Devlin (Karla Crome, Under the Dome, Prisoners’ Wives) is a good cop with a dark secret: she’s loyal to drug trafficker Frank Le Saux (Philip Glenister, Life on Mars, Ashes to Ashes), who is like a father to her. But when their clandestine meeting turns violent, leaving Frank dead and Nancy with a bullet wound, Nancy fears her double life may soon be exposed. Assigned to Brighton to investigate the crime, Nancy must track down Frank’s killer while concealing her role—and her injury—from her enigmatic new partner, DS Gunner Martin (Noel Clarke, Star Trek Into Darkness), and her old friend, DS Kevin O’Dowd (Robert James-Collier, Downton Abbey). Can Nancy stay one step ahead of her colleagues—and the killer? Featuring “a great cast and a twist-filled plot” (London Evening Standard, UK), The Level also stars Joe Absolom (Doc Martin), Amanda Burton (The Commander), Lindsey Coulson (EastEnders), Laura Haddock (Guardians of the Galaxy), and Gary Lewis (Outlander).

“The Level” was held up to a great extent by a solid supporting cast. However the lead investigator, as portrayed was greatly lacking in credibility. She appeared to be in a constant state of confusion and panic from the very beginning. Although she was given to be an established and respected Investigator it was a stretch beyond reason to accept. The dialogue as previously indicated could have been much better. But when a lead characters presentation is allowed to be more annoying than anything else it makes for a long long series. The ending left an obvious door open for a sequel.
