this is some of the best work the bbc have done in years!!!
if you love series like prime suspect, you will love this smart offering from the BBC. For the three nights it was on I was glued to the screen. Everyone in the cast has out done past work on messiah and other programmes they have done in the past. It was good strong drama for the bank holiday weekend, the story develops with each murder and you find yourself playing detective along with "red" and his team. Messiah does not spoon feed you like some dramas tend to do but makes you work as hard as the characters do in trying to figure out what is going on. Each Character has dimensions and layers and as the case gets more harrowing you learn more about them. The stars of Messiah may not be Brad and Morgan but they can hold their own in this. England is free of rain in this drama on a bank holiday weekend for once. This series should be on more often. the only thing left to say is: watch it, watch it!
