Trivia

In Series 2 Episode 2, DI Jack Armstrong (Toby Stephens) states the assumption that DI Georgina Dixon (Miranda Raison) was "watching endless episodes of 'Poirot'". Both actors played characters on Poirot; Toby Stephens as Philip Blake in "Five Little Pigs" (S9;E1) and Miranda Raison as Mademoiselle Blanche in "Cat Among the Pigeons" (S11;E2). DI Kate Bishop (Lucy Punch) did as well as Susannah Henderson in "After the Funeral" (S10;E3). See more »

User Reviews

Irreverent humour. It appealed to me.
22 August 2010 | by geoffmssSee all my reviews

It is always very tempting to write a comedy drama off if the laughter factor is low from the start. It is a dangerous thing to do so so early - I only have to point to the Blackadder First Series and the first two series of Only Fools and Horses and say actually they weren't that funny to be honest.

With the pedigree of the writer of Misfits and the Producer of Little Britain I expect this series to develop positively. The first episode went along at a lightening pace and I have to say it sucked me in. The jokes hit my spot. The idea of building a comedy around a loyalty card stalker is a nice one - and there were plenty of one liners to please. Not everything came off - no "pussy cat" jokes again please - they went out with Mrs Slocombe in Are You Being Served.

OK it is not easy to replace the very excellent Sherlock but no comparison should be made. I'll be tuning in hoping to see this one progress. Toby Stephens and Lucy Punch were a delight but they carry the whole show on their own. Deepen the involvement of secondary characters and we might see this improve.
