Storyline

Expert British hostage negotiator Dominic King (Trevor Eve) is called upon when a businesswoman (Emma Fielding) from the UK is kidnapped in South Africa by a sinister figure named Willard (John Hannah). When the release of the woman goes wrong and Willard strikes again in Britain, King realizes this was never a straightforward case of kidnapping for ransom, and that the man's motives run much deeper than ever imagined. King, along with his superior, Angela (Helen Baxendale), and assistant, Carrie (Amara Karan), must now work against the clock to bring Willard's latest victims home alive. Written by bobbyandbeans

Gripping and well acted- quite excellent
8 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I do agree one or two parts are on the far-fetched side, and the ending could have been more. But Kidnap and Ransom made for quite gripping television and I was really impressed.

Visually it is very striking, not just the photography which is skillful and the lighting which adds to the atmosphere but also the locations which are well chosen and used to great effect. The story is well paced and very gripping with some suitably tense moments, there is a cracking script and good direction.

The acting also impresses, Trevor Eve is excellent in the lead as is John Hannah as the main villain. Emma Fielding is also smashing, evoking genuine emotion when she needed to. The characters are credible too, there is the odd cliché here and there, but with the writing and acting as good as they are I actually didn't mind.

Overall, a very gripping, interesting and well-acted series drama and definitely worth it. 8/10 Bethany Cox
