Goofs

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 »

Lot of potential at start but suspension of disbelief needed
20 March 2016 | by s_imdb-623See all my reviews

As other reviewers indicated, it had a lot of potential at the start but the suspension of disbelief gets more and more as episodes progress. I started off with 7/10 rating but this has dropped to 4/10. I managed to stick with it until episode 6 but really can't stand to watch anymore. The contrivances have turned it into a humourless pantomime. Whoever wrote and directed this lives in cloud cuckoo land as far as policing (and even common sense goes) - possibly the way things were done in '60s popular shows (when the public knew no better). The method of policing we see is: find some hearsay, arrest and accuse the alleged perpetrator very loudly, run into things without any backup and collect no evidence, get shouted at by horrible boss for there being no evidence, alleged perpetrator (who we really hate) gets released by horrible possibly evil boss, we are all supposed to be sympathetic with the heroes.

Here's an example of disbelief: cops raid container yard; one cop runs off chasing bad guy; isn't seen or heard from since for 12 hours; no-one bothers to do anything, his partner apparently tried to get him on his cell and thats all. By the way, he was kidnapped by a baddie from the container yard. This is a senior police officer going missing during work and no-one bats an eyelid - very convenient. If only this was an isolated incident, those of us who actually have a working brain could get into the fantasy.

Another issue I have is that all the actors/cops seem to be playing characters from children's TV, apart from Nesbitt. Especially his partner played by Karan. Its very difficult to imagine a children's TV presenter as a cop. The baddies on the other hand are well played, as are the side characters, especially Jing Lusi and Omid Jalili. The side characters are played with a lot of real-life angst - like the waiter whose family is being threatened by crooks. Nesbitt plays himself as usual and for some reason that always works well.

Its a shame because the novelty is that its a Marvel Hero based in London. Its refreshing; the city, the stories, the characters, and the British production.
