The BBC lays another egg!
Troopie from Hua Hin, Thailand
15 February 2006
The BBC has made many great dramas, & David Suchet has given us some
fine performances. Sadly, neither is true of this contrived TV series.
The fact that no 'Technical adviser'is listed says a lot, as there is
no UK police unit like the one featured in this series -- & hopefully
never will be! The writers seem to have tried to transplant 'Hawaii
5-0' to the UK, but sadly, there are no sunny beaches or exotic ladies
to distract us from the weak plot, paper thin characters, & total lack
of realism. I watched this on BBC Prime in Thailand but after
tolerating a couple of oh so predictable episodes, I would prefer to
watch a Thai drama -- even though I don't understand a word! Do
yourself a favour -- avoid this series & keep your fingers crossed that
the BBC learns from its mistakes.
