Excellent Underrated Euro Series
7 July 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I have waited in vain for this series to be released on video or DVD. This was a truly excellent although unfortunately never very widely publicised series. The premise of the show - a Brussels-based detective agency with an English, German, and Italian detective all working together is unusual and the execution was excellent. The show was well written and well directed with very high production values and some superb guest appearances from luminaries of British TV such as Lindsay Duncan and Bill Nighy. Jenny Agutter, as the owner of the detective agency, Kate Milverton, and the three stars, Rob Spendlove as Chris Tierney, Urbano Barberini as Fabio Cavalcanti, and Ulrike Schwarz as Anna Holz all had a wonderful familial chemistry that was a pleasure to watch.
