Based on the British crime drama of the same name, 'Touching Evil' centres around David Creegan, a detective returning to work after surviving a near-fatal gunshot wound to the head. Creegan is a man on the edge with a flair for understanding the criminal mind but also has a tendency to bend the rules when it suits him. When he is assigned to the Organized and Serial Crime Unit of the FBI, he is partnered with no-nonsense Susan Branca, who is determined to do things by the book. Although the two clash on many occasions, they are determined to work together to bring down the psychopaths who torment the streets of their city. Written by Melissa J

Bruce Willis? OK... did he have a brain transplant? This is -GREAT-!
22 July 2004 | by fjarle-1See all my reviews

Reminds me a bit of monk; if you took some of the focus off of the main character and used it to create great suspense and mysteries to go with the goofball detective.

One of the very best thriller/suspense-series in years.

And to think Bruce Willis is behind it. It shouldn't be possible.

The whole feel of the show is way different. The mood is pressed, even though there's some comic relief in the oddness of our main character. The music is slow versions of a few great industrial rock songs... (among them at least one Nine inch nails track)... and more, I'm sure. Nine inch nails is creepy enough in full speed... slowed down to a minimum it's even more chilling...

It's creepy all the way. Each episode is a bit like watching a condensed version of "Seven".
