Storyline

It's a big day for Ripley Holden as he opens his new amusement center in Blackpool. Holden is a drinker and a philanderer who sold his other businesses to open on the promenade. He has grand plans as well, hoping to eventually open a full-fledged hotel-casino. On re-opening the next day, he finds a body lying on the floor in the middle of the place. The dead man also happens to be someone Holden had an altercation with in a club the night before; he denies to the police however that he knew or had even seen the man. DI Peter Carlisle is assigned to the case and Holden's attempts at bullying him - including a complaint to Holden's pal the DCI - have little impact. The autopsy reveals that the man had been dead for some hours and his body moved to the arcade after his death but Carlisle insists that the just opened arcade remain closed. Written by garykmcd

David Tennant is a dream
24 July 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

i really love David's work not only on the screen but also on the stage.i think its because you can tell that he puts so much passion into every role that he is given!and this is no exception, here he delivers a talented yet believable character who falls in love with a local hard mans wife. they then have an affair but that is not enough so he try's to frame his wannabe partners husband of murder.I'm not going to tell you how it ends because its so good you should experience it for yourself.i only hope that one day i can either be as talented as David or at least work beside him.If you really want to see talent you should look on the internet and see if you can see him on a video in look back in anger.so powerful and so talented. and it helps if hes good looking.Hannah
