touched by god
23 January 2008 | by garywoodburnSee all my reviews

I watched both episodes back to back - and I have to say that although Marc Warren has a limited look and appeal he stood shoulders above the rest of the cast.

When you watch enough of these shows it gets easier and easier to spot the villain- and in the and the killer was about as threatening as a bag of wet cornflakes. Don't hit me you big horrible baddie - i think not.

However if you strip away the major plot holes and the fact it was pretending to be a watered down Seven done by the BBC - it was watchable.
