Storyline

Helen Stephens is wrongly sentenced to 12 years in prison for murdering her boss Eric Bridges, the managing director of Entirely Tiles. Although she is sure that it will only be a matter of time before this mistake is rectified, everyone around her seems to be conspiring to keep her behind bars. Lawyer Tony is incompetent, sister Laura wants her flat, and fiancé Justin - her alibi - has disappeared. Colleague Henry seems to be the only one willing to help, but he has an ulterior motive.

Perfectly Produced, Less Perfectly Written
1 July 2012 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

After four episodes of this show I have to admit that I like it more than it obviously deserves. This, because the actors are doing a great job and directing and camera are at a high level. Pacing / Cut is fast enough to prevent boredom.

Nothing less is to be expected from a BBC production.

At a second glance, 'Dead Boss' seems to hinder itself from being a good show. It's soft, nice, and - nearly irrelevant. It's good for spending half an hour with a slight smile, and after a few episodes you are common with the 'family', i.e. bad girls, good girls and some pathetic men. The jokes are sometimes not the best, but mostly mildly entertaining. There are many missed opportunities to get more from the plot, some grabbed chances after all, and nothing outstanding.

It's also too well-behaved for my liking. I prefer more dark, black humor, stronger political incorrectness, and so on....

But also, it looks somewhere promising. With a bit more bravery it could be at least a good show.
