Poignant, Honest & Thorough English Police Docudrama
13 March 2019 | by dori9274See all my reviews

Martin Clunes performance was convincing although outside of his more recently usual genre. I believed his portrayal & I have increased respect for his acting talent since viewing this story.

The story itself I found interesting, especially since it reflects true events and, because of that aspect, I felt free to expect & tolerate a bit more of the day-to-day grind which happens behind a working police force. It kept my attention and I viewed all three episodes within the span of 24 hours.

It introduced an aspect of police work which I had not previously considered, that being the stressors of the job not related to fear of being injured or that of dealing with injury & loss of life because of crime, however the impact of the profession on Clune's portrayed daughter was as per usual, cop parent never home enough, and cop parent worries more about family because they know what goes on out there. The program did a good job on the stressors in the second marriage of the detective, but also of the wife, also in a relatively similar field of work and was impacted because of her marriage to him (not just because of being the wife of a cop). It demonstrated how her professional life was impacted as well, and as an analyst, perhaps how the forces behind crime solving can be underappreciated by not only the public, but by the front line cops who deal with the public. It also, sadly, showed that corroboration between this married pair might have enhanced expedience in results, but was impeded by not only the husbands initial singular-minded stance but by the competing district. It also reflected her just concerns about her detective spouse's impact on coworkers which may affect her own job. I enjoyed her portrayal here and had appreciated her in her another genre, also, (the only other thing I remember her from), which I believe I am correct that she played Emma Timmons in the series Larkrise to Candleford, which was originally available here in the States provided to us by PBS. We are limited by what's available here, but her talent leads me to expect she is quite well-known in the UK.

Perhaps others looking toward the excitement of the usual fictional crime drama, which can be built into a script with car chases and such, might find the going a little slow, but as a docudrama with all this going on underneath the actual crime, and the honesty in which this case was portrayed, showing the pimples of a working police department. People do go on holiday, there can be miscommunication with it which can delay outcomes and cost lives, a bungled search, etc. think the story was very well done, and I can do without car chases and bullets flying.. the attic scene showed enough suspense about possible police injury for my taste. This shows only some of the difficulties in police work and how the job affects the lives of those working it, as well as being a good portrayal of the actual story of how this disturbing psychopath interacted with those in his life and how he was cought. It shows how law and order may be interfered with and manipulated by tge press. It demonstrated the stressors & resistance any professional must endure to effect a more responsible job, but particularly the resistance a detective, who fights resistance to being thorough, both higher and lower in rank, which is costly, and speaks to the to the dedicated diligence that is needed to make an effective arrest... one which will actually take the bad guy off the streets and effect a conviction, which is the result we all want in real life, not just an exciting story. To me although not an exactly exciting story, it was an intriguing one.
