Great Show - Good Acting, Good Writing, and Intesting and innovative Plots
20 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

We watch Acorn TV all the time, and have been watching British shows almost daily for about 17 years. Thankfully we 'stumbled' on this show, "The Broker's Man recently. Besides Kevin Whately looking like a cousin of Paul McCartney, he is a great actor and brings energy to the show. We've watched three 90 minute episodes so far now and we DO NOT find it boring in the least. Even though he is an insurance man, there is often a murder or two involved and incorporates subplots as well. We are still scratching our heads on why they only made 2 seasons. We did notice that it was co-produced by Brian True-May who also produced Midsomer Murders. which, coincidentally, started the same year as the Broker's man did. Maybe that had something to do with it.

I would not say this is as good as Midsomer Murders, BUT This show IS A very good and is definitely worth a watch.
