Surprisingly watchable mini-series
24 May 2010 | by See all my reviews

I don't know which is the bigger surprise- that this is out on video or that such an obscurity would be so pleasurable to watch. A three part TV mini-series set in Edinburgh about a pair of newly minted lawyers investigating a murder. They have the odds against them dealing with the town's complex web of loyalties ranging from the highest to lowest rungs of society. Nothing at all revolutionary here; what's here has been done a million times. What makes it a decent ride are the highly enjoyable performances by Ewan Stewart, Isla Blair, Stella Gonet and the rest of the cast. Much credit should also go to its writer Alma Cullen. Anyone who appreciates that famous British knack for wordplay will find plenty here to savor.
