Storyline

DCI Ross Tanner and his deputy Catherine Tully are investigating the brutal murder of a 19-year-old boy. Among the suspects are a gardener who may have been supplying the boy with drugs, a live-in nanny who may have been having an affair with the boy, an overprotective mother whose new two-year old daughter may have put on strain on the mother-son relationship, a step-father whose work interfered with any intimacy with the boy, and an identical twin of the lastly named 'suspect.' Tanner's skills are tested to the maximum because he is experiencing loss of vision and is hiding the fact until the case is resolved. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

Awesome.
30 September 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'm completely amazed by Harry Preston's "review", I think the best bit must be this: "May I suggest to Rebecca Eaton that she add sub-titles to this show (which still has a few episodes to run) so that American viewers can truly enjoy rather than endure the British dialects and poor diction of the performers". It's incredible. It's also made me ashamed to have a British dialect on the English language. How dare I? Second Sight is great, please enjoy it, don't let a self appointed internet retard put you off a good few hours entertainment. Clive Owen is typically brilliant here and the whole show is a testament to the quality of BBC programs.
