Lewis
29 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Can I say what a privilege it was to see this programme. It had everything going for it. It was discreet,sympathetic, but also showed it's originality for the character it was supposed to show. As a lover of "Morse" I thought this programme was well over due. I can understand the break, but Kevin Whately also played such a huge part which we loved. It's funny, I think back to watching "The Equalizer" when I was younger, I loved the attitude of the character & could see what the actor was giving towards it, Kevin is giving this and more due to the history of things. Well done Kevin, you've done a fantastic job. Please can we see many follow ups to this, this is after-all what we pay our licence for :LoL: I love Dramas & this was the the top of my list.

Congratulations Kevin, long may this series continue.
