Surpasses expectations
13 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

STAR RATING:*****Unmissable****Very Good***Okay**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead*Avoid At All Costs

Following on from the successful pilot episode first broadcast in December 2001,Red Cap has now been made into a six-part TV series for the BBC.Initially,it seemed like a bit of a gamble turning a successful,one-off episode into a continuous series which could wear the premise thin and make the stories become predictable or silly.But,on the contrary,the stories in the Red Cap series really require you to use your brain,and full of interesting and exciting twists and turns that sustain viewer interest right until the end.You have to pay attention to everything that is being said and inferred so that you don't lose track of the story,and this is always a great thing with thrillers.Tamzin Outhwaite is also extremely well cast as the heroine of the story,and is very engaging to watch perform.Fine programming from the BBC.Gee,if only they'd show it on Saturday night.****
