Storyline

Dirty Tricks stars Martin Clunes, who plays an English tutor at an Oxford language school. Although Edward can be charming and thoughtful, this camouflages an underlying calculating liar and manipulator. And although things are going great financially for Edward at the moment, he is under suspicion by a local CID inspector after a couple of murders in the area. An innocent dinner invitation by his friend and his wife triggers a series of events which lead our hero Edward down a very precarious and hilarious path. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Edward states that he learned French so that he could read "Thérèse Racquin" in the original language. "Thérèse Racquin" is about an adulterous couple who dispose of the woman's husband so that they may be together, a close parallel to the story of "Dirty Tricks." See more »

Cunningly Ruthless & Funny throughout.
26 October 2002 | by (Tasmania, Australia) – See all my reviews



I just saw this screen recently on the Australian ABC TV network, it was split over two weeks and after the first half ended I was left longing to see the second part, it did not disappoint!

As a fan of the Men Behaving Badly series, I was interested in seeing Martin Clunes in this role, and he did an amazing performance - played perfectly as the caring and thoughtful as well as the deceiteful and calculating person he was trying to portray, always delivering a fantastic and well balanced mixture of all traits.

If your the type who feeds on fast moving drama's that always keep you guessing then this is one for you. It has everything I like in a British comedy/drama (Infact some parts captured almost a dark humour.)The british definately have the head start in this genre.

Absolutely loved it!

4 out of 5 stars..
