The main character is continually addressed as "detective", which is par for the course in the USA, but not in the UK. On the British Isles, police officers are addressed by rank, with the "detective" part dropped and just Constable, Sergeant, Inspector etc. being used. See more »

User Reviews

Very interesting concept, could yet be a winner
25 January 2016 | by jeffsunflowerseedsSee all my reviews

I felt obliged to write something as the review showing on the main page was written by such a Negative Nelly and needs displacing as quickly as possible. So far only the pilot has been released so no rating but it shows early signs of promise.

Harry is a detective, played by the seemingly ageless James Nesbitt, who becomes imbued with the ability to bend luck in his favour after he inherits an ancient-looking trinket. However the person he gets this from did not seem at all happy with it and the show begins to hint at an early stage that all this good luck has a Newtonian counterpart that must be suffered others.

Investigating a series of deaths seemingly linked to the item and dogged by his new, straight-arrow boss, Harry must try to get to the bottom of the mystery of his new-found amulet, the mysterious and gorgeous woman who forced it upon him and the as yet unknown character trying to get it back again.

It's early days as yet but the plot is intriguing, the acting of British quality and the main character is most certainly an anti-hero, which I personally find quite appealing. Worth a look.
