Storyline

DCI Ross Tanner and his deputy Catherine Tully are investigating the brutal murder of a 19-year-old boy. Among the suspects are a gardener who may have been supplying the boy with drugs, a live-in nanny who may have been having an affair with the boy, an overprotective mother whose new two-year old daughter may have put on strain on the mother-son relationship, a step-father whose work interfered with any intimacy with the boy, and an identical twin of the lastly named 'suspect.' Tanner's skills are tested to the maximum because he is experiencing loss of vision and is hiding the fact until the case is resolved. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

A Hard To Find Gem
15 August 2004 | by panicstrickynSee all my reviews

So I've started seeing Clive Owen here and there the last few months and I look him up to see what other work he's done. I end up searching for this set of TV episodes and Greenfingers. Both are movies I couldn't find in my neighborhood movie rental spot. Anyway, I loved this show. All eight episodes kept me interested, though I was disappointed with the Tully just suddenly moving along aspect, and Clive rules the small screen just as well as he does the big screen. I highly suggest anyone that enjoys Clive's work pick these up, especially the 1st two dvds (2 parts to each one). Oh, and some great cameo's but well known actors as well. Overall, an A- for the set.
