Beautifully acted and executed series
22 November 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I think this show was exceptionally well-made both in production values mirroring the down-and-out locations used and in the everyman-wish to see the "bad guys" dealt with after having dodged a cumbersome hands-tied legal system.

It's a shame that a couple of reviewers tried to put the boot in instead of dealing with their own obvious issues.

I find that I keep checking every few months to see if the Powers That Be (PTB) have decided to extend The Fixer in the same way that they practically forced Spooks to continue because fans refused to let them bring to an end what was probably one of the top television shows ever made ON EITHER SIDE OF THE Atlantic.
