Storyline

Wry and obsessive DI Buchan is a cop on the edge; suave and self-assured Jack Harvey is a best-selling crime novelist with the world at his feet. As Buchan probes a 100-year-old cold case, his investigation takes him on a journey into the Scottish capital's literary past that will cause him to question his very existence and set him on a collision course with his onetime friend. Written by James Mavor and based on an original idea by Ian Rankin, Reichenbach Falls (commissioned as part of BBC Four's fifth birthday celebrations) reflects Rankin's fascination with his home town of Edinburgh and the legacy of a city which has produced so many Scottish literary classics, from 'Kidnapped' to 'The 39 Steps', from 'Sherlock Holmes' to 'The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie'. Written by James Mavor

Very good, very surreal
1 March 2007 | by (The Forest of Dean) – See all my reviews

Excellent viewing.

Playing on the fictional tough detective genre, this weird little drama plays along quite easily for the first 10 minutes or so and then drifts off in to the challenging. Not that challenging is bad, in fact it makes it worth watching.

A troubled detective, his partner is gunned down, is sent into the depths of old Edinburgh (good travelogue) to investigate a 100 year old body. His past keeps catching up with him, not least the man who stole his wife off him, his best friend, now a very successful author. Lots of swearing and a bit of violence later we get to the snooker and revelations. Another success for BBC4.

The cast were very good. Laura Fraser and Nina Sosanya both worked on Casanova together and have appeared all over the place, they were good as usual, I have a soft spot for both. The lead male, Alec Newman I have not seen before and looking at his CV seems to done a lot of US TV, nevertheless he played a good drunk, troubled and rogue detective. John Sessions put in a John Sessions and the other roles were okay. But the award for the most outrageous false Scotish moustache goes to Richard Wilson who appears as, well that would be a spoiler.

Trivia: I once sat two rows in front of Richard Wilson at the Barbican for a performance of Romeo and Juliet, he wore a baseball cap all evening. The actor playing Romeo was David Tennant, see Casanova. Spooky or what. I had an awful cold and spent the entire performance trying not to cough or sneeze.
