Trivia

Only six stories (the pilot Anna Lee: Headcase (1993) and the five episodes of this series) were filmed. Author Liza Cody stopped writing Anna Lee mystery novels because of the television movies. The rights had already been purchased for any future Anna Lee novels that she might write. However because she was unsatisfied with the way that the previous books had been adapted, she said she wouldn't write any more of them; instead she focused on the Eva Wylie books. See more »

What a MESS!!
9 September 2015 | by (Canada North) – See all my reviews

Presumably the reason the author of the books this show was based upon REFUSED to continue on with the series is the unbelievably POOR job they made of it. Having not read any of the original books I can't say that they were any better but I can pretty confidently say they almost COULD NOT have been worse. Amateur screenplay....way too many 'cutsie' low-level camera shots until we not only expect them but we dread yet another one. The producers can't seem to make up their minds if the 'heroine' is cute and glamorous or a butchy tomboy.

The setup story is she is ex-police dismissed for having too much attitude and being too physical......AS IF! The female lead, played by Imogen Stubbs is beyond a doubt MISCAST and doesn't seem to be able to find her character. With the exception of a tiny spot in episode 1, she is about as ferocious as a damp kitten.....all hiss and no ...pee. The sets and location shot choices are dreary and bland and the costumes......don't get me started. She looks, most of the time, as if the wardrobe was chosen from the bargain rack at the Salvation Army Store......DEEP discounted. Brian Glover COULD have partially rescued this mess if they had written for his character but sadly his talent is completely wasted.....he might just as well have played a standard lamp....without the shade. All in all I can see why it only lasted 6 episodes but what I don't understand is HOW on earth it lasted 6 episodes?? DREADFUL waste of time.
