Interesting..
12 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

Easy viewing about a scot\ex cop\pi. Isaacs is compelling enough to convince as the basically good guy whose life however is far from good personally or professionally.

Cases seem to fall into his lap and he works more than one at a time. This would work well in a book but feels rather contrived on screen. No Hollywood endings but isn't more credible for it. Strange to say considering that we routinely suspend logic and reason as viewers but the stories interweave with a neatness that doesn't sit well.

Stories and pacing like this work better with narration. But no personal observations here, since apart from some remarks about his daughter's outfit etc he isn't exactly chatty.

Stunning landscapes and competent cast. Relaxed pace, few twists and some good music.

Dark and brooding without being haunting or particularly memorable.

Will look good compared to some other small screen offerings but wont stand up well on it's own.

Wish them well.

Thank you.
