The Paint has dried...
17 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

... although I didn't see it happen as I was distracted by watching (much of) this telemovie.

This was a competently created but by-the-numbers sort of show.

We have our hero for is an anti-hero, damaged goods, but well meaning. Not liked by the 'bad guys' in the police force but respected by his old boss.

And so on it goes. I assume a whyteboard session was used to created the original story and all of the boxes ticked to created a formula story.

Now, I should note that I am not a woman and I got the feeling that the target audience for this is more 'sheila' than 'bloke'.

Some have suggested that this set of characters be turned in to a series. It doesn't worry me. I wouldn't watch them.
