I think this was a first trial episode
8 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story itself was not bad but sexual content bothered me. They had women acting like prostitutes right from the start.

In the beginning Troy/Belinda Lang meets Alleyn while he is on a boat. She is an artist and is painting an outdoor scene. Alleyn gets called back from his sailing by his boss because his boss wants him to investigate a case.

One scene is a woman in bed with a man. He gets out of bad naked from the head down and we get a side view of him. This was so disgusting to me.

When Inspector Alleyn was questioning a woman she sat on a bed and pulled up her dress and put something in the top of her stocking. She looked like she was trying to temp the Inspector.

Inspector Alleyn is played by Simon Williams in this episode and this is the only one episode he plays Alleyn. The cast list says Inspector Roderick Alleyn.

I started watching episode 2. I have other episodes and none were as sexual as this. In the second episode Troy is very friendly with Alleyn and Inspector Alleyn is then played by Patrick Malahide the name Roderick is not listed. I did not know why Troy seemed close so I went back to the almost ending of "Artists in Crime" to find out, then I deleted this episode.

At the end of "Artists in Crime" Troy finds out that Alleyn has some mental problems from being in the service. He goes inward, does not talk to anyone lives in a huge house with his mother who tells Troy this. His mother said he is a loner but that she is glad Troy is friends with her son. Episode 1 season 1 ends with Troy being very compassionate and understanding while associating with Inspector Alleyn who she was kind of rude too in the beginning.

The first parts were garbage. Following episodes were not bad. Troy/Belinda Lang is a good actress. Both men who played Alleyn Simon Williams and Patrick Malahide were also very good actors.
