Makes Broadchurch look like Scooby-Doo!
17 April 2017 | by khunkrumarkSee all my reviews

This is the third outing of the latest reboot of a familiar character on British TV. Twenty-five years ago (In the early nineties) Michael Gambon played the lead on TV. Before that, a moody Rupert Davis was the man in charge of an early 1960s version for the BBC. This time around a mature Rowan Atkinson is at the helm with a more reserved, stoic and academic interpretation of the French policeman.

Maigret's Night at the Crossroads starts with a Jewish jewel fence called Goldberg who goes against his wife's wishes and tries to pull off a last job before moving to America. He's shot at a quiet crossroads in the countryside just outside Paris and his body is discovered the next morning in the garage of a secretive man with a disfigured body and a serious eye problem.

Once again the story has perfection in every department. This is the very best of British television drama. The suspects slowly unfold into the narrative and the story glacially meanders to its logical conclusion. If anything, this third installment has a bit more 'action' than the first two tales. A couple of shootings and just a bit of running around in the dark. But mostly the focus is on the exquisite stories of all the characters, their motives and their surroundings.

Too may reviewers have spent too much time on the lead actor... which to me is a distraction from almost perfect TV drama. Congratulations to commercial television for taking a chance and doing something right. There is too much public attention thrown towards other more frothy cop shows but this rendition of Maigret makes Broadchurch look like an episode of Scooby-Doo!

Make a cup of Horlicks, draw the curtains and ignore the rain then settle in for a bloody good drama.
