Disappointing
14 December 2009 | by (China) – See all my reviews

The production values of this made-for-TV movie are very much in keeping with much of contemporary UK TV drama, i.e. cheap, formulaic and dull. This is a shame as there is a quite interesting storyline underneath what is yet another uninspiring police drama. There many fine established actors here, who try their best, but struggle to make this movie believable. Emma Pierson and Max Beesley are reasonably convincing, but much of the rest of the cast seem like fish out of water in their roles. Perhaps they were miscast – or maybe misdirected, I'm not sure, but either way the effect is disappointing. Don't go out of your way to watch this one, but that said, it's an acceptable way to fill a couple of hours slumped in front of the TV, when your tired and feeling vegetative.
