It's grim up north
29 September 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'm a Scot so at least I enjoyed the wild scenery of my native country in this BBC four-part thriller mini-series. Otherwise, it was as appealing as a plate of cold porridge and just as indigestible.

A young newly-married couple, childhood, next-door sweethearts are found brutally murdered just after their wedding and for some reason the apparent murderer drives out to their side-by-side parents' houses, but wouldn't you know it, a storm gets up and he crashes his car just as he arrives, leaving himself at the not so tender mercies of the two families and their employees, these arranged like characters on a Cluedo board and just about as believable. Meaning of course that everyone has motive and opportunity leading into a protracted whodunit until all is revealed in the final episode.

In the background, we're then presented with the investigating female detective and her needy teenage daughter suffering some incurable disease. So, to raise money to take her child to India for a possibly life-saving operation, she dispenses some hard drugs on the sly to a local dealer, which arrangement of course was bound to tragically blow up, as it soon does, with the accidental death of a young teenager who innocently takes one from her older brother's stash.

What else, well, one of the family's sons has a fraught relationship with his wife who is a past rape victim, the nurse daughter is being pressed by an elderly, terminally ill patient to help her commit euthanasia, the deeply religious patriarch of the other family has Parkinson's Disease, plus his wife is having an affair with his chief farm-hand and their son has a crush on the afore-mentioned nurse.

My wife and I sat through all four hours of this dour, slow-moving production, without ever believing any of it. The acting was soap-opera bad by all, the dialogue of a similar dubious standard.

This was obviously an attempt at Tartan Noir, but good quality here was as elusive as Scotch Mist.
