A competent series but lost to the main body of TV viewers by being broadcast on Channel 5.
13 November 1999 | by (Lincolnshire, England) – See all my reviews

Philip Madoc is a very dependable actor and he plays his character, DCI Noel Bain, very well with a touch of humour. The sub-plot has him a widower with a late-teenage daughter and there is also a consistent thread of other sub-plots in and around the police station.

The story-lines were good, up to the standard of such major series as 'Frost', and the direction firm.

The pity is that this series (I don't know how many episodes were made, but it must have been 13 or so, having been made by Pearson, was aired on Channel 5 and therefore went largely ignored.
