Detective Inspectors John Major and John Carver (Stephen Graham) are the top crime-fighting duo at the Met Police’s Special Investigation Unit. When their cover is blown, Major is gunned down and killed on the job. One year later, he’s back from the dead and better than ever. Or so he’d like to believe, anyway.
Glitches notwithstanding, he’s got to track down the person who shot him and prove himself as a cop. And also, save both his marriage and friendship along the way.
