I came for David Tennant and stayed for the understated humor of watching a ragtag bunch of river cops go about their day and generally just exist. There are some truly golden jokes and weirdly heart warming moments set against the backdrop of an idyllic backwater. The characters are funny and engaging, there isn't much plot, there also is no laugh track. Your mileage may vary whether the exchanges between Marilyn and Ollie are an example of the values dissonance of the 90's or just some black humor. I found it a light, pleasant watch that was truly one of the most endearing shows I've ever seen, making me very sad that only seven episodes exist and no more will be ever made. All in all, will watch repeatedly just to hear David Tennant shouting "We saw a maermaid" in his beautiful brogue.
