Cars swerve to avoid an agitated man wandering on a freeway until the man is hit by a truck and killed. Eyewitnesses said the man, Pat Fisher, was clearly disturbed, and some on the police force think that no other explanation or investigation is necessary-- except for Detective Tom Monroe (Robert Carlyle, The Full Monty). Finding newspaper clippings, class photos and tape recordings about Fisher's classmates dating back to 1976 in the dead man's apartment, Monroe discovers three other mysterious deaths among the class. Soon the deaths and their strange circumstances, which date back to the kidnapping and murder of 10-year-old Amy Irvine, begin to haunt the detective as much as they did Fisher. In this tense, gripping psychological thriller, Monroe must unravel the mystery of the Class of '76 before, as Fisher warns from beyond the grave, "It won't be suicide, won't be an accident.

Fairly intriguing made-for-TV thriller
7 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

STAR RATING: ***** The Works **** Just Misses the Mark *** That Little Bit In Between ** Lagging Behind * The Pits

DI Tom Monroe (Robert Carlyle) is investigating a series of mysterious deaths that trace back to his old school mates.

This is an inspired, fairly intriguing made for TV film with a plot with twists and turns that mean you really have to pay attention to it. According to the press, Carlyle is sick and tired of the 'soullessness' of Hollywood and is keen to stay over here and make projects with more depth and meaning, so that can only be a good thing. Even though it does feel a little derivative at times of other serial killer films before it (The Silence of the Lambs springs to mind!) in ITV's 50th year, this is a pleasing piece of work indeed. ***
