The stories of this series journey through a kaleidoscope of human emotions: anger, hatred, bitterness, remorse, guilt, horror. In this psychological study of humanity on the edge of an abyss, some of the series' murderers get away with it, some of them don't. Amongst the subject matter is euthanasia, accidental murder, contract killing, revenge and even a sleepwalker who knows she's done something but not what or to whom. Written by Bye

Well worth watching
13 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

In the modern era of television, over the last ten or so years, there has been so little worth watching. The BBC still produces the odd rare gem, and this was one of them. A slightly wry look at the murder mystery with the stories told in a variety of narratives and a variety of perspectives from the straightforward to the outright wacky this is a wonderful little series that briefly shone for 3 series and left at just about the right time. The episodes are uniformly good.

Especially notable is the episode "Contract" with Adam Faith in as a contract killer in one of his last TV roles with Jamie Theakston putting in a surprisingly good performance as a Yuppie Banker.
