DI Ray: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (1) John Anderson Wall Street Journal That gives something of a kick to “D.I. Ray,” even if its principal agenda seems more about resentment than detection. Jul 7, 2023 Full Review DI Ray: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Craig Mathieson The Age (Australia) A depiction of systemic racism lodged inside a murder case, this British police thriller is a post-Line of Duty series, produced by that hit show’s Jed Mercurio and eventually boasting a similar swift narrative velocity. Jun 14, 2023 Full Review DI Ray: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Sean O'Grady Independent (UK) Low key in tone and atmosphere, DI Ray, cop and show, that is, deserves to be a success. Mercurio ticks another box. Rated: 4/5 May 5, 2022 Full Review DI Ray: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Jeanine T. Abraham VisAbleBlackwoman (Medium) DI Ray draws you in within the first twenty seconds of the cold open and has you hooked by the opening credits. DI Ray is the kind of police procedural that any actor would love to be a part of. Rated: 5/5 Aug 10, 2023 Full Review DI Ray: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Martin Brown Common Sense Media PBS mystery series are practically a mini-genre unto themselves, and this British import follows standard operating procedure. Rated: 3/5 Jul 19, 2023 Full Review DI Ray: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Joel Keller Decider The main reasons to watch DI Ray are Parminda Nagra’s lead performance and the theme of her fighting against bias in her department. We just wish the case being investigated, and some of the characters surrounding Ray, were more compelling. Jul 12, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

Will S The plot relies on a coincidence that did not work for me. If reviews for the second season are strong, I will watch it; the problem is not the cast. Rated 3/5 Stars • Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/21/24 Full Review VisAbleBlackwoman P It gives a perspective of the police in the UK we rarely get to see. Acting is all top-notch. Compelling writing, lots of surprises, well done! Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/10/23 Full Review Lori K Good acting, but painting all cops as incompetent racists, all whites as stupid, aggressive racists, and DI Ray as a constant victim is pushing the victimhood agenda too far. She sees EVERYTHING as racist act against her. It's exhausting. It's irresponsible to stoke the racial unrest, hatred of whites/cops that already exists in the UK tinderbox. It's almost as if the writer, producer WANT to stoke, support, incite non-whites to start a race war. Rated 2.5/5 Stars • Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 07/24/23 Full Review Stan H Just watched the first episode, but I like it so far. Lead character facing strong headwinds in her new department. Should keep it interesting. Rated 4/5 Stars • Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/17/23 Full Review Philip M The story was interesting and dramatic. D I Ray is a very good detective inspector. She is sympathetic. I found the series very watchable. I would.like to.see.another series. Sorry there's only one season. Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/16/23 Full Review Mary M This show was terrible. Full of foul language, sexual inuendo and graphic sexuality. Rated 1/5 Stars • Rated 1 out of 5 stars 07/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews
