Read the Books
12 April 2021 | by Pohadky7See all my reviews

I'm glad to see that there are users who enjoyed the series. And there were those who didn't. To both camps, may I recommend that you give a look to the novels on which this series is based? Benjamin Black's Quirk plots are an excuse to display language that is a both joy and a marvel to behold. It's unfair to ask that the richness and complexities of these books be translated to a TV series. Even so, watching, I kept thinking, 'There is so much more.' To the naysayers of the series, if nothing else, may its existence lead you to give the books a try.

On another note, I thoroughly enjoyed Stanley Townsend's Inspector Hackett. Just right.
