Second episode better
1 March 2002 | by (Cambridge, England) – See all my reviews

The first two-parter was okay, but not great. The second two-parter, concerning a serial killer called the Carpenter, was much more effective. I always thought knives, scalpels etc. would probably be the worst instrument you could have used on you, but the idea of being nailed to a table and then having your limbs crushed with a hammer takes the cake. I think what made this a cut above the usual crime dramas was the acting - both Nardini (especially in the scene in which she finds out what's happened to 'boyfriend' Mo) and Tim Dutton (as the only victim of the Carpenter still alive) were excellent. His performance rose above the cliches that are inevitable when describing a victim of that kind of trauma. I'm hoping for a third installment.
