Not your typical policemen..
29 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

'Chasing Shadows' is a new crime drama starring Reece Shearsmith (The league of gentlemen) and Alex Kingston (Doctor Who) based around the missing persons unit.

Reece plays Ds Sean Stone, a detective who has little trouble working with the people around him and who needs to hire someone to remind him to eat, clean his clothes etc.. but other then that he has a brilliant mind and is always focused on the case. After having embarrassed the station during a live TV interview, he his reassigned a new partner Ruth Hattersley played by Alex Kingston how is recently divorced and is now back living with her mother as well as having a son who takes too much interest in her work for her liking.

Reece is exceptional, playing Sean must have been one of his most difficult roles as he has to try to avoid natural acting instincts like looking people in the eye. At points you want to slap him and other times you want to give him a hug.

'Chasing Shadows' is gripping, intelligent, funny and worthy of a second season, trust me you'll want another after watching the final episode.
