The acting and directing are poor. The acting is hammy and overblown and brings to mind old BBC series' from the late 80s and 90s. The fight scenes are laughable and the action sequences look cheap and badly done. Not at all convincing. Think cheap Bollywood without any special effects or cables making people fly.
This is VERY 'family'. The BBC Radio 4 accents, the tame fight scenes, the overly simple plots...it's so...mild...
...and incredible shallow. The characters are all out of the BBC 1992 hero scrap book and they have no depth at all. The plots are all very simple, poorly written and with really bad endings. Like they were written on the bus on the way to filming.
It is a watchable series, especially while you're doing something else! I have it on while I'm working to be honest. Whenever I watch it properly I am constantly reminded that I'm watching a very low budget, poorly done programme that is in a totally different league to big budget shows.
