Not as good as expected
21 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this with expectations that it may be good due to the reviews here. However I found it a little hackneyed and predictable. John Thaw has never really appealed to me as an actor. I watched a couple of Morse episodes which were OK but nothing out of the ordinary in spite of it's "much-loved" tag. I always hated The Sweeney and was never drawn to any other Thaw projects. I just found the relationship between Thaw's character and Saffron unbelievable-in fact I found Saffron unbelievable as a 9-10 year old girl. The scenes that took place in the few days after the death of the child's mother were particularly unconvincing - people just do not behave like that. Of course this was a drama and it was what it was - a couple of hours entertainment. I certainly would not recommend it to anyone as a programme to watch as a priority. All that said everyone in this acquitted themselves fairly well in acting terms, so no brickbats for that.
