The killing seems professional but the only witness, a young woman strung out on drugs on the street corner, gives the police a false name and address. Kip tracks down Abdullah's home, a set of garages, to find his sisters. They are scared and Kip's convinced they're hiding something. Set over the course of four days, the spiraling repercussions surrounding Abdullah's murder are explored. Politician David Mars (John Simm) becomes instantly embroiled in the drama through his turbulent relationship with his ex-wife Karen who took delivery of the pizza. While Jane Oliver (Nicola Walker), a compassionate vicar, struggles to conceal her affair with the sole witness to the crime. Refusing to accept this is a random act of senseless violence, Kip is determined to discover if there is a darker truth, as the death of one individual, who has lived out of the sight of respectable society, begins to resonate through the institutions that shape our lives.

By centering this story around all of these totemic societal institutions, Collateral is taking a broad view of all of these key political, legal, and religious pillars, which are subject to the individuals who comprise them.

From the beginning, the show was not only superbly high energy, but peopled with characters whose back stories are easily as gripping as the main action.

Mars looks like a nice guy so far, but who can tell what's going on behind those curranty eyes?

What unfolds, then, is part thriller, part procedural, and part political commentary, all wrapped in a smartly written package and adorned with fully realized characters and strong performances.

Collateral filters issues through a uniquely British lens, creating the uncanny sensation of observing a political system and its failures that's like the American system, but not of's less a whodunnit than a whydunnit.
