the purgatory of moral ambiguity
23 September 2006 | by georgioskarpouzasSee all my reviews

I have seen the first part of the series on DVD which I found absolutely brilliant. The two supporting actors are different in the first series than on the other two. from the photographs I have seen of the actors of the second and third series, I find the first couple more attractive. I was amazed by the series which captivated me. Are the events narrated related to any real life events deposed on a police department or court?Arthur Koestler has written a book on the paranormal, The Roots of Coincidence, so I believe that such phoenomena have found academic attention.The other thing I found amazing is that evil scores many points on those series. They are full of subtleties and moral ambiguities.The series reveals the potential for evil contained in the average person. It is a masterpiece of BBC. I also admired antithesis and balance between the male scientific skeptic and the female spiritualistically oriented student
