This is a splendid piece of work as a body is found in a loft of a building split into a number of flats. The place has enough red herrings to start a small fish shop but gamely gives you every possible clue (and then a few more). Every flat-owner has issues. The investigating officer has a few of his own too, but is played with admirable calm by David Threlfall. In a genre that, in the UK, is full with old thespians chewing scenery with yet another unlikely serial killer: this series is all the more effective of involving suspects who are all too ordinary and an officer who looks like he just might know a bit of procedure. At four episodes be prepared for the temptation to watch them all in one fell swoop.

The series did sell me more than one dummy as I'd have nicked several more wrong suspects before being investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission....

Oh wow I really loved this series. The plot and the acting are first class. From the start I was gripped. I just couldn't wait to play the next episode. I didn't actually see this BBC series when it went to air but I remember my family members discussing it. I am so pleased I have now watched it. I would recommend this series if you enjoy a good crime drama with a lot of twists and turns and everyone is a suspect. Enjoy!

"What Remains" is a drama primarily about peoples concern for one another and the lack of it. An amazing team of actors gives an unsurpassed effort in an ensemble performance of a caliber rarely seen anywhere else in the world, done without firearms. In over fifty years of watching television I've never seen better. Gary Brodnax

I thought this was a great drama for most of the time. All the characters were well thought out and well acted, and David Threlfall was excellent as the retiring detective. I liked the way the action would cut back to show glimpses of the dead girl's rather sad life - an excellent performance - and how everyone in the large old house, now divided into separate flats, had related to her. None of them were telling the truth to the police, as was shown in these flashbacks, but the big question was why did they lie, and which lies were important?
I watched each episode on consecutive nights on the DVD and was so hooked that I didn't know whether I wanted to watch the final episode or not, as it meant the end of the story. Unfortunately, as someone else has said, the very end descended literally into overkill, and I sat open-mouthed as the final credits rolled, wondering if a different writer had penned the final fifteen minutes. It made sense, just about, but stretched the suspension of my disbelief to its limit. All the same, for most of the time it was an outstanding piece of drama, and I'd love to see more like it, but with a better ending.

The story is strong, well plotted, and opens for viewers speculation without loosing strength or direction all the way to the ending (where I was genuinely surprised). The setting is beautifully done. The house in which the story takes place is full of atmosphere and sett a chilling mood for the telling. Definitely a spooky place. The cast delivers strong, believable and engaging portrayals of the characters involved. From the main characters to the more background ones all came across clear and 'right' (used here to mean they fit into the story). And the score was hardly noticed , but in the right way. It set the tone and mood so strongly it enhanced my viewing experience a lot. Add to this a depth due to the humanity of the tragedies involved and you have a near perfect package of a crime mystery. Because I was made to care and feel about the victim, and as the story went on, about many of the other involved characters fates , it made a strong emotional impact as well as a good and exciting viewing experience. Easily recommended. :)

I enjoyed this. It's well acted, good storyline and nice settings - well produced and directed. A bit of a pot boiler but it holds you in. My only quibble is the ending is a little over the top and in one aspect is actually unbelievable. But some nice twists.

Format: DVD
A house is divided into five apartments. The mummified body of a resident (Melissa) is found in the attic. She has been there for at least two years. The other residents have not missed her and profess to knowing little if anything about her. David Threlfall (superb as Detective Len Harper), believes she has been killed by someone in the house. He is widowed and just retired so officially should not be on the case that becomes an obsession. Gradually the dark sides and secrets of the occupants are revealed with their underlying emotions, especially of anger and jealousy. Tony Bagsallop, the series writer, has produced an effective, tense and often brilliant whodunit. The plots stretch the imagination at times, but the acting and characters are excellent by a mostly unglamorous cast and the cinematography first-rate.

Harper seems to empathise with the emotionally neglected Melissa and the loneliness she had to endure which he fears for his own future. The threat of being alone along with control are strong features of this four-parter where couples prefer to be together whatever the circumstances even in this hell-house. The ending is dramatic and controversial, mostly out of context with previous happenings. Also, the killer could have been a non-resident who could have entered the house as it was mostly empty during the day and doors locked. The body must have given off some malodourous smell and Melissa had no mail, not even junk, through the letter box to arouse suspicion. With subsequent events, these would have not been in anyone's interest and the writer, correctly, keeps matters on one site. Just a few thoughts). Nevertheless, this is a captivating, entertaining and thrilling murder mystery.
