An Inferior Sequel
26 May 2010 | by StevenzzzSee all my reviews

Most of the lead characters from the original return for this one. Like before, this three part mini-series takes place in Edinburgh. This time out, there's a lawyer arrested for the murder of his wife. Is he the actual one responsible, or is the town's uncaught serial killer the one to blame? This series is a different animal from the first one. One of the charms of the original was the chemistry between Stella Gonet and Ewan Stewart. With Gonet gone, Stewart has no one to bounce off lines with. A sometimes exotic looking Rachel Weisz plays his girlfriend, but their pairing is more for service of the plot. Their age disparity ensures that no sparks ensue.

The script lacks the wit of the first series. With a different writer this time out(John Cooper), the mechanics are typical TV gyrations. What's more, the motivation given for the setting off of the killer is nothing more than a contrivance. So it's up to Stewart, Isla Blair and the rest of the cast to sustain attention. Thankfully, they do.
