Trivia

This series was known as "Strike" when it aired in the U.K., but when it appeared on the U.S. airwaves its title was changed to "C. B. Strike." In 2017, Steve Greene reported for IndieWire that "the initials were added to the U.S. title to avoid confusion with "Strike Back," another series in the Cinemax 2018 lineup." See more »

I have just watched 'The Cuckoo's Calling'. This is a great take on the hard on his heels private investigator gets an opportunity story. JK Rowling's content is as well written as a John Grisham/Agatha Christie with the added frisson of cool London locations and culture. I particularly like the casting of Tom Bell as the rough-round-the-edges sleuth and the engaging Holliday Grainger as his ever so capable assistant; they are both so watchable. I look forward to the next series (and for any critics of this series yes I am perfectly happy to overlook any plot holes).
