Disappointing
14 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Blethyn is a joy and her young sidekick a pleasure to watch but good as they are they can do nothing for the thinly spread barely believable plots and the clod-hopping scripts. The rest of the cast are hardly memorable and some of the minor characters are played by actors who are barely adequate. And who decided that all the characters should speak with the same accent? Someone obviously thinks that all Geordies talk in this cute folksy way no matter what their position in society. Newcastle is a vibrant city and Northumberland breathtakingly beautiful but you wouldn't think so if all you had to go on was this dreary presentation. This series is very disappointing for anyone who has read Anne Cleeves original novels.
