Hit and miss
29 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Marksman is a three part thriller about a professional killer who returns to Liverpool from self-imposed exile in Spain when his son is murdered.

In the aftermath of the Hungerford Massacre that took place in the summer of 1987, this series gained notoriety because of the subject matter and its showing was delayed and there were some re-edits done.

So far the series was only shown once and has never been repeated by the BBC or shown by a satellite channel.

David Threlfall who had made his mark on stage and on TV in Paradise Postponed a year earlier provided another chameleon like performance.

This was also the first dramatic TV role for Craig Charles as a gangster type who was until then better known as a street poet and Red Dwarf was still hovering on the horizon and would not launch until 1988.
