Ex Catholic Nun Profiler? No seriously....
21 April 2011 | by PippinInOzSee all my reviews

Just finished watching this made for television film.

What a wonderfully put together contribution to the English crime / detective television genre. Fiona Shaw's ex - nun profiler is so refreshingly different and beautifully realised I am disappointed that there does not appear to be any more films utilising the same character.

If you 'enjoy' (inverted commas because still not convinced that this is the correct word to describe precisely why quite a few of us out there watch these programmes - Grimms Fairy Tales for Adults maybe??) the English style of Police Investigation programme, along the same lines as 'Prime Suspect' then do give this a go because you won't be disappointed.

Also, how brilliant to watch a main character (Fiona Shaw's Frances O'Neil), a published profiler, carry out her investigations with such quiet humility. Makes a change from the ranting, 'I know I'm right!' egotism and unchecked police brutality of Boyd from 'Waking the Dead' and the UK's version of 'Touching Evil' where Robson Green's lead character exerts similar ego and scene stealing antics. Not an insult to these two programmes, just useful examples.

The 8/10 is within the context of the post Prime Suspect English police drama - high praise indeed!
