There's a disturbing sequence with a mouse. It's unclear whether a real mouse was harmed to film it.

A character in S3 has a heroin addiction and there are scenes in which it is used and a subsequent death.

Not abuse, but Marcella very often drinks beer alone, so it kinda feel a depressed drinking.

Also there's talk in S1 of a former alcoholic relapsing.
And talk of an alcoholic father in S2.

At the very end of S02E02, Edward, Marcella's son, kills one of his pet mice.
I found it pretty disturbing, although you kind of see it coming so it's easy to mute/cover the screen.

In S02E05 an already dead fox is shown on screen, Edward poking it with a stick, pretty gruesome, you can see the death wound.

Absolutely. I'm not sure why two people have pressed no. Season 2 is about a serial killer who lobotomises children then buries them in prominent places around London - they then suffocate or starve or just die. Season 3 episode 1 has a host of immigrants found dead in the back of a truck.

Someone is found in a lorry, stabbed in the eye. It's shown on screen, though not excessively close.
Several causes of death are eye related, and though it's not shown on screen, we see a victim just before it happens, wearing an eyelid opener

In season 3, one man is the target of many ableist comments. Characters make snide comments about his phobia of germs. In episode 7, the man's brother attacks him for not going along with a scheme. He is tied to a fence, urinated on, and left where he cannot act on his compulsive need to wash himself. He is also coded as autistic and called Rain Man.

Parents abuse their children sexually in season 2 though it is not shown but talked about.
In season 2 also there is a peadophile who's girlfriend is pregnant with his son and he leers and fauns over the picture of the baby in the womb. The baby doesn't get abused.
