A Little Gem that keeps me watching.
17 May 2006 | by bsobottkaSee all my reviews

Have found this series by accident on Vision TV in Canada. Have enjoyed Peter Davison in The Last Detective and was pleased to see another series starring Peter. Unfortunately I have started this at Series Two and have not seen the first.

The scenery is beautiful, the stories and acting extremely natural -something it seems only the British can do. There is terrific development each week of the characters and the plots are very realistic. It is not hard to get drawn into the series with such a strong and talented cast. The story lines in Series 2 have all been well written and I look forward to each weekly episode. This series has strong bones and could continue for many more seasons.

Hoping for Series 3 - I will be watching along with many other Candians.
