The Fixer
1 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

Entertaining tosh about a group of misfits formed to provide a service over and beyond the limits of British policing. In effect, the group is asked to either terminate or neutralize those seen as a threat to British society and its values. They are not strictly MI-5, nor are they attached to the police force, but their control and assignments seem to emanate from somewhere in British government, although it would appear that their activities are not necessarily monitored or made known officially to the Prime Minister.

A very strong acting corps, including Peter Mullan, Andrew Buchan and Tamzin Outhwaite carry some dubious plots with good gritty performances. Some of today's issues like people smuggling, sexual exploitation and pedophilia are covered in several of the episodes.

The Fixer is not up to the same standard as Spooks, but few programs are. Good escapism with high production values. 7/10
