Critic Consensus: Informer boasts striking visuals and a promising performance by Nathan Rizwan -- if only it weren't all undermined by uneven writing and an overly cynical world view.

Tv Season Info

After a series of unfortunate events not coincidentally tied to the color of his skin, Raza is coerced into becoming counter-terrorist officer Gabe's newest undercover informer. Gabe (Paddy Considine), who has a past he is unwilling to expose, is joined by Holly (Bel Powley), his new and ambitious partner whose endless curiosity becomes threatening to him. As Raza falls deeper into a complex web of bad guys and the clock ticks for Gabe and Holly as the threat to London grows, the stakes for all three will reach a fever pitch.

Critic Reviews for Informer Season 1

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (6)

Whereas similar shows have ended with a tidy conclusion, these kind of investigative dramas are richer for going beyond the backstory of a single crime to explore how much it continues to resonate long after the story ends.

What makes Informer is Raza. The series marks Rizwan's screen-acting debut, which is hard to believe since he brings such varying levels to his part.

You may need a high-tolerance threshold for these cynical almost aphorisms.

The pacing is brisk and Raza's perilous journey into the London underworld, infiltrating a gang of Albanian bad guys, draws you in.

Informer feels like a good weekend binge, but something that's not intense enough to watch more slowly than that.

Jan 11, 2019 | Full Review…

[Informer] delivers a smart, captivating series that's worthy of a binge-watch.

Jan 11, 2019 | Full Review…

As an incisive exploration into the deeds that we do and their long-term effects on ourselves and others around us, it's a compelling and addictive portrait.

When Rizwan is on screen, it has a bounce, an engaging lightness. Gracefully avoiding the handshake of a female teacher, casting a skeptical eye on Londoners of every description, Raza is always good company.

While it's at times glutted with incident, 'Informer' still makes for a compelling and, finally, rewarding binge.

Jan 10, 2019 | Full Review…

Even when Informer hits some potholes (and plot holes), it stays on track because Rizwan, Nsengiyumva and Considine never flag in their performances.
