Solid mystery with an interesting setting and a great supporting cast
3 March 2019 | by pabstcanrocketshipSee all my reviews

Kaye Beckinsale has never been a phenomenal actor. And her weirdly smooth forehead doesn't help her to emote, here. (People in their mid-forties have horizontal lines on their forehead when they raise their eyebrows, it's just how we're built.)

But the ravages of time and of botox notwithstanding, this is a thoroughly enjoyable mystery miniseries. It has some shakey writing in a few places, some eye rollingly cliche conversations, but the overall plot remains engaging throughout, and the pacing is really well done.

It's not an explosive action-filled tale, but neither is it boring or sedate. By the end I was happy I'd spent the time.
