Simon MacCorkindale' character is magnificent
4 April 2001 | by (Moscow suburb, Russia) – See all my reviews

After our Russian TV airs this TV series, I fall in Peter Sinclair starring Simon MacCorkindale. His character is magnificent. I saw many films, that include Simon and I think, in this show he is at the peak of his career. I remember, for this role he received a GEMINI nomination for Best Actor in a Series. Also he was an executive production consultant here. I had seen he exerted influence to creation of this show, plots etc. I have found out, that it's fine, fast-moving show, with the very interesting characters, remarkable actors, unusual humour. I like the various plots: together with detective investigation, mysticism, psychological thriller, love affair, in every episode they contemplate any important problem. I watch many detective show (European, Canadian, US), but I think, it's one of the best.
