National Crime Squad
4 November 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

NCS: Manhunt shown on the BBC was a supposedly slick crime drama written by Malcolm McKay.

It was a polished and fast paced thriller with plenty of hi tech computers and a squad of ten specialist detectives led by DI Borne (David Suchet) who in effect were the British equivalent of the FBI.

Suchet is very good and memorable. A tough and uncompromising detective but a lot of other members of the cast did not convince me that they belonged as bobbies never-mind being in such an elite unit.

The opening episode focused on a sexual fantasist who has kidnapped the elderly mother of a senior police woman.

Something in the direction of the series left a lot to be desired. Competent but also a little bit too by the numbers as well as plodding.
