As she deals with an unexpected pregnancy, D.I. Helen Weeks must return to the hometown she loathes to help her childhood best friend, who finds herself at the centre of a media frenzy following the abduction of two teenage girls.
This series follows country vicar Merrily Watkins, who is one of the few women priests working as an exorcist in the UK. When a grisly murder takes place in her local area, the police come calling for her assistance.
Anna Maxwell Martin,
A young couple move into an apartment only to find the body of a young woman that had been missing for 2 years but never registered as missing which leads to a deeper investigation into what actually happened.
The story of Claire Church (Duff), a former police officer who moves away to the remote Western Isles in an attempt to escape the violent past that still haunts her. Soon, Claire is pulled back into an investigation she thought she had left well behind, by her former lover and colleague DCI John Hind (Johnny Harris) and his new DS Anthony Boyce (Luke Newberry).Written by
Yet again the Beeb has managed to produce a whacking great turkey. This is one massive bore from start to finish, full of supposedly meaningful looks and camera work, portentous noise (it can't be called music) and pretty well nothing else. The plot, such as it is, meanders around to little purpose, while the characters are caricatures and demand little attention and less interest. Each episode seems to be longer than the previous one, and the last seems to go on, and on, and on, like a bad bout of 'flu. As for the ending, when it finally arrives it's a blessing, even if it is horribly drawn out and utterly idiotic.
As is so often the case, it's frequently difficult to tell who is who, so bland are the personalities, and the acting in general is as wooden as can be. It's full of angst and everyone has 'issues'; what it doesn't have is any significant amount of detective work or suspense. It's rubbish, and the sooner I hear that it's been consigned to the dustbin of history, the better.
