User Reviews

29 April 2018 | by markfranhSee all my reviews

I'd been looking forward to these 2018 episodes tremendously after enjoying the first series back in 2017. All I can say is 'disappointing'.

It seemed to lose its way entirely compared to the earlier efforts and the plot sometimes seemed a bit like a Death in Paradise formula: a murder with 3 possible suspects and we run around investigating the 3 suspects until all his revealed in the final few minutes. None of it was particularly convincing and the ending just a cliche.

A sad way to end what had previously been a great series.
