What a pleasure to see 'old haunts' used in the making of this program, it was nice to travel down memory lane.
It seemed to all fall into place, location, script, Actors, blended well to produce an intense modern day who-dun-it.
Philip Madoc, Gillian Elisa and Sharon Morgan, to name a few, were fantastic.
Great story lines, delving into the nitty gritty of Wales, such a pity it came to an abrupt end.
The first two series of 'A Mind to Kill' were excellent, but it was a shame that only three members of the original cast remained for the third, or maybe they felt as I did, the script was too deep. It had lost it's way, the stories became too sinister, there was no longer a sense of joviality in the script, it was so serious and not what we had all, grown to enjoy. No longer like the Bain we knew and loved, the flirt, who could be a little rude, serious when needed, wicked when not.
Why change a good thing?, it was not the move to C5 from C4 that proved fatal.
It would be wonderful if it was possible to have the original actors and writers return, and maybe have it shown on either BBC, ITV or it's first home C4, and show the rest of the Country what Wales has to offer in good drama.
