I surprised myself by enjoying this - it's not usually the kind of programme that I'll sit down and avidly watch, but the producers have successfully managed to put all the ingredients into the pot and so turn out a very enjoyable meal.
All of the main characters are well written and well portrayed, especially Stephen Fry who really excels in the title role.
The stories are always interesting as are the underlying plot strands and there's a nice bit of comedy thrown in for good measure.
Even if this isn't usually your 'cup of tea' I'd highly recommend giving it a go. I really hope there is a second series.
