I watched about 20 minutes of one episode, then tried another - same thing. Unfortunately, I don't really enjoy watching sadistic scenes of people being tortured to death. Apart from that, seems very well made and acted. Best suited to those who appreciate the horror genre.

I have viewed this complete series and found it to be well done in writing and acting - although personally, I feel like telling Peter Boyd to RELAX and stop jumping to conclusions ! However, the people are REAL and natural with each other, unlike the American tripe we are subjected to !

(May contain spoiler/s) Series 6 tried to have something for anyone and everyone, I think. The Nazis, African/Islamic politics, abusive children's homes, themes in frequent past or present use. Grace's stormoff and shadow-help through Eve in one episode seemed contrived, as did Boyd's coming to terms with Mel's death, if that's what it was meant to be when he placed the stone on her grave. I suppose Boyd's taking up with the American gives fair warning of 'international episodes' in future seasons? ...I can't recommend this season for anyone save those going year by year through the series. If I'd seen these first I doubt I'd look for any other in the series; in fact, I may not have bothered with all the episodes in this season, even.
