Storyline

On the same day Jimmy Collins is released from prison, he discovers that he has a remarkable psychic-ability. He gets visions when he touches people or their belongings. He sees what they see and feels what they feel. His main goal is to rebuild the relationship with his daughter Amy who lives with his ex-wife and her new husband. Jimmy wants to return to the normal life he lived before he ended up behind bars, accused of assaulting the man who attacked and nearly killed his wife at the time. Written by HardHouseClubber

If you liked The Dead Zone or Afterlife then you'll like this too.
5 August 2007 | by sharonmaraisSee all my reviews

Fabulously well written and acted. I really hope that this is not just a one off. Stephen Moyer was convincing as Jimmy Collins and the premise was well constructed and executed.

If you were a fan of The Dead Zone or Afterlife then you'll certainly find this to your taste too. ...there are similarities between these shows and Empathy, but in my opinion the writing and acting are better in this show than either of the others.

This was a 1 1/2 hour drama which did seem to be setting up the outline for a new series, yet there is no further information available at the BBCs website about if or when it might continue. If this is to be the opener to a series then they may have made a serious mistake in not following on right away - it's always best to build on forward momentum than to try and regain an audience once the new season's schedule starts.

Please let the BBC continue this as a series. Saturday night TV might just become bearable again if they do.
