Fitz returns to Manchester after living 10 years in Australia with his wife and youngest son. He is soon drawn into the investigation of a British soldier who may have been traumatized by his years serving in Northern Ireland.
Paul Finchley is a bona fide "national treasure", one half of a popular, long-running comedy double act. However, the famous comedian's world is thrown into chaos when he is accused of historic sexual abuse.
A thriller that tells a traumatic murder story through the eyes of three central characters: Carrie the daughter of the murdered woman, Douglas Hain the detective in charge of the investigation, and Sally the murder victim.
STAR RATING:*****Unmissable****Very Good***Okay**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead*Avoid At All Costs
In his first TV role since Cracker,Robbie Coltraine returns impressively as a successful but ultimately bored legal barrister who takes up on a crook he helped aquit's idea that he use his skills to help mastermind ingenius robberies.His distinctive thick Scottish accent combines with his masterly sense of wit and cynism to create a character who morbidly ponders on the decadence of life,character traits that made his character in Cracker so engaging.Mind you,the leading performance is not the only thing that makes this movie riveting viewing.The supporting cast are perfectly watchable,but director John Strickland engagingly pens it out as a two part film,involving plenty of inventive and unexpected twists to add extra spice to the story that keep us engaged throughout.The ending's a little weak,but,so that at least it matches the end of this review,aside from this it's fine stuff.****
