All four episodes of the ITV miniseries starring Alex Kingston, Noel Clarke and Reece Shearsmith. When Ruth Hattersley (Kingston) of the Missing Persons Bureau gets assigned to partner autistic DS Sean Stone (Shearsmith) they begin working straight away on the case of a missing teenage girl. As they pool their knowledge and resources to catch a suspected serial killer who preys on vulnerable young people, Hattersley, Stone and DI Prior (Clarke) encounter dark truths that they never could have imagined.

I really loved this show, I just wish it had been on for abit longer!. Of all the characters DS Sean Stone is by far the best and most intriguing. He has completely no people skills and cant even look at people in the eye when he talks to them, but thats one of the many things I love about him. His social awkwardness is a breath of fresh air for me, how many other shows can you think of that have their leading role like that?. I also love Ruth Hattersleys mother and son, I also wish that was somthing that could have been explored much further than it was. I really hope there will be another series, especially after that cliffhanger!.

Where to start with this ridiculous series?

First we have Det Sgt Stone, a cop seemingly with Aspergerger's (though that is never discussed), who is paired up with a more conventional partner. Now where have we seen that before?

How on earth could Stone have ever got into the Police Force in the first place, let alone be promoted to Sergeant? Yes we all know the odd copper can be lacking a bit in the social graces, but to have no interpersonal skills whatsoever, nor any ability to work as part of a team, is just too daft to be believable. Weirdly he can't even pay for his own groceries without his housekeeper (inevitably a Eastern European) taking the money from his wallet.

Then, as if the Asperger's weren't enough, he has to wear an old raincoat on a seemingly permanent basis. Now where have we seen that before?

The other characters are similarly poorly written. We have Alex Kingston as Ruth Hattersley the so called 'Missing Persons expert', whose main purpose seems to be to look incredulous at the antics of her new sidekick, whilst herself displaying absolutely no expertise at all, despite year of previous experience in the field. Roy Hattersley would have done better.

As is required in all British cop shows she immediately jumps into bed with Stone's boss, then curiously they stumble around like a couple of teenagers on their 'first date' some time afterwards. Clearly a case of 'shoot first ask questions later'.

She also inevitably has a troubled son (where have we seen that before?) who seems to be some sort of Trainee Psychopath, and who is possibly even dafter than Stone.

Loved it, got really caught up in the story, and was sorry there were only 4 episodes. I hope more are done. Reece Shearsmith was brilliant and sad, Alex Kingston looked like a real middle aged working mom possibly making life errors even dumber than the ladies of Scott & Bailey. Well worth my time.
