A series of killings of bank managers has London in a turmoil, all the way up to Parliament. And the killer regularly calls about his handiwork, but only to a street-wise, and usually rather tipsy, radio reporter, about to be sacked for his habitual irreverence toward his station and the BBC. And while everything seems to point to a lead singer of a rock group famous for the "In The Red" music which has been connected to the killings, in typical British mystery fashion, there are also other sub-plots to be considered.

An absolutely excellent mini-series, In The Red was cleverly scripted and well acted. Several sub-plots are woven into a brilliant ending that really does keep you guessing... Filled with laughs throughout, as well as numerous jabs at the institution that is the BBC, yet always managing to stay on track and not stray from the plot, I found this to be very entertaining. The only weak moment was the end of the first episode, where a combination of mediocre special effects and a little too "hammy" a scene almost made me not bother with the second episode. To anybody else who feels the same, I'd say - stick with it, it is worth it!
For those of you familiar with British TV, expect to see a quite incredible array of British TV personalities in roles or just making little cameos throughout...
