Welcome to the Former Detectives Club, Susi!
(Not enough fangirling yet, my dear, but you probably haven't seen the light yet...)
I actually do agree with you on some of the points you've made. Especially the problem with the different structure in S2. I also feel that there is the danger of losing some of the tension we had practically at all times during S1. Now we have the Sandbrook case and the Latimer case, and both cases are only connected through Alec, at least up until now. It's a bit like jumping from one story to the other at times, and I hope they'll bring both stories closer together at one point - although I have no idea how.
Sharon: I don't like her at all, like I already mentioned, but for now I'll just wait and see. I'm sure there is more background story to her, and we will get it. There has to be an explanation for her aggressive behaviour, and I'm pretty sure there is one. She has a history with Jocelyn, there is something going on with her son... I hope it'll all make sense in the end.
Mark and Tom: At this point this doesn't bother me, I have to admit. Simply because I have no idea what's going on exactly. Mark seems to be with Tom quite often, at least judging by the fact that Beth very often tries to call him in vain. I don't know where this story will be going, but right now it would make sense to me if Mark used Tom as some kind of substitute for Danny. Which certainly isn't very healthy, but somehow understandable. And also, maybe Tom is using Mark as a substitute for his father...? (I have to add though that I don't have children, maybe a mother or father has completely different feelings about this.)
By the way: I don't like Claire very much. She definitely is hiding something, but whatever that may be... right now I don't like her. And I don't like the fact that she is around Ellie so much. She isn't good for Ellie, that's my feeling.
