A waste for Hayley Atwell
7 July 2013 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This was not one of the better police procedurals and frankly, a waste of Hayley Atwell's talent.

The three episodes cover a 28 year lifespan of WPC Denise Woods from 1985, when she was a Woman Police Constable to the present time, as she is now, a Superintendent. The initial criticism is that other than a change in hairstyle, she didn't age one bit. One would think that with all the stress of police work, and in this plot line she had her fair share of stress, she would show some physical scars from the strain of it all.

Her personal storyline was somewhat unbelievable. Promotion, demotion for planting evidence, and then promotion again to a senior rank somewhat strained the credibility. The overall plot stretching 28 years over three episodes left a lot of gaps in what could have been an interesting back-story - her relationship with her husband and her colleagues. Two additional episodes in might have been able to improve that and give some depth as to how she managed to regain and even surpass her previous rank and why it took so long for Denise Woods to catch the criminal she was so obsessed with from the beginning.

Hayley Atwell is an immensely talented actress and she has appeared in some great roles; Pillars of the Earth, The Sweeney, Falcon, etc., to name a few. This was not one of her better roles.

The three stars are for the production, which in itself was OK.
