British crime investigation series based around aristocratic, Oxford-educated Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley ( Nathaniel Parker ) and his working-class assistant Sergeant Barbara Havers ( Sharon Small ).
Captain Anaïs Chatelet, a head-strong police detective in Bordeaux, heads up a team that tries to solve a series of mythological murders which appear to have ramifications both at home, in her father's past as well as a big local multinational active in chemical weapons. Her investigation leads her to tackle along with a psychiatrist who helped her first suspect suffering from amnesia. The lack of evidence on the sight of the murders makes it very complex to solve but the psychiatrist appears to be very insightful, too insightful maybe?Written by
The Passenger starts with a very workable plotline, but doesn't seem to put enough work into delivering its possibility. A watchable series, it's held back by lazy, sloppy writing, leading the episodes with happy coincidences, lucky breaks, repeated way too easy escapes, and incredibly convenient chance encounters.
The series tries to present high intrigue by dragging the story all over France for no apparent reason, and the characters seem to get around with lightning speed. But instead of adding depth or grandeur to the events (a la Bourne's world hopping), it just comes across as unnecessary.
Some expected red herrings along the way... a little sex thrown in... not a bad way to spend a few hours, all in all.
