Storyline

In spite of Chief Superintendent Innocent's orders to the contrary, DI Lewis continues to investigate the supposed suicide of housewife Rachel Mallory. Regardless of the replacement coroner's findings, Lewis simply cannot find a single reason why the attractive woman would take her own life. She was married to a successful optometrist, Hugh Mallory, had two lovely children and a good circle of friends. As Lewis and Hathaway dig deeper into the case they obtain two important pieces of information. The first is that Hugh and Rachel weren't married but actually part of a wife swap that occurred some years before with Hugh's business partner. The second comes from a eccentric Oxford professor who promises the police an important piece of information in return for a favor. Written by garykmcd

The script is So Bad.
24 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

C'mon. This is really so poorly written that it's laughable. There is absolutely no "unfolding" of a plot whatsoever, just gibberish until the end when it's, "well, he/she did it." Oh, OK. In Morse there was brilliant writing with believable characters, dark old secrets that were revealed intelligently and an ending that made you feel like you'd spent 100 minutes on something worthwhile. And then there's Superintendent Innocent who is some kind of unnecessary cranky middle-aged nincompoop or something -- it's: "let's have an interfering superior like the American shows do" by the producers. Zero subtlety and zero caring about anything that's going on. What a waste of talent -- all done in by silly drivel writing.
