Goofs

When DCI Maggie Brand (Tamsin Greig) learns that a witness she needs to interview is in Schwerin, Germany, she's told that she can fly there via either Hamburg or Frankfurt. Hamburg is in northwestern Germany, Frankfurt in central-southern Germany and Schwerin is in northeastern Germany. Flying to Hamburg and then driving to Schwerin (as Maggie does in the film) makes sense; going there via Frankfurt does not. See more »

same old song
19 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

The body of 4 year old Callum Reid, who disappeared from a neighborhood barbecue five years earlier, is found near his home. DCI Maggie Brand (Tamsin Greig) leads the investigation after leaving his missing person search due to personal problems years earlier. The mother Claire Reid (Katherine Kelly) and her family are devastated. As the show flashes back and forth, there are secrets revealed.

This is another British dead-child show. It has yet another maternal primal scream. It's a story of small town dark secrets. I certainly like Tamsin Greig. The extended flashbacks don't always add to the tension. The most compelling and memorable scene is actually the Brands being confronted by their kid's teacher about his suspected autism. It came out around the same time as Broadchurch and is deficient by their comparison. It's fine by itself but it's the same ole song and overshadowed by its competition.
