I met Lennie James (Lee Kingley)
22 September 2008 | by darnell-mathesonSee all my reviews

Buried is one of the best British series that I have ever seen and I was desperately disappointed when they did not make a second series. The acting was brilliant, it had depth, it managed to be original whilst having very good story lines as well. I actually met Lennie James when he was filming a programme called Frances Tuesday and I congratulated him on Buried and he said that he would not have done the second series if there was one so maybe that was part of the reason why they did not do one. Even though this programme is now a few years old I still haven't seen anything near that quality since that time and even though when it was and they showed very late it was worth staying up for, even though I taped the whole series!
