"Silk" is probably my favourite television series to come along in many years. The acting is superb and the story line and character development strikes a great balance between edgy, human, and at times humorous. The stories are interesting, though, I must say that they all touch on very disturbing subject matter. So this might not be the right series for you if you are squeamish about such things. I haven't bought Series 1 because both it and Series 2 are currently available on television. Shortly the third series will be aired. So, I am holding out for the end of Series 3 as I am betting on a three series pack being available soon. Anyway, this is a must see and yet one more example of British Television at its best.
