5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent crime series with a complex, intriguing plot, 18 Oct. 2014
This review is from: Line of Duty Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Taut, tense and constantly unravelling the details right until the last minutes. Definitely need to watch Series 1 first to understand some of the characters. As there are still rats in the ranks, lets hope there's another series very soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark and brooding, 31 Aug. 2013

This review is from: Good Cop [DVD] (DVD)
Not much joy in this tense and harrowing tale of a good cop gone bad - Warren Brown is excellent and a nice portrait of him and his father. Much left up in the air at the end, but after the plot twists, that's to be expected.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good courtroom drama, 30 Aug. 2013

This review is from: The Jury [DVD] (DVD)
A bunch of odd characters thrown together on a jury and they all have a chance to stand out. Julie Walters is strong and I don't mind her playing herself...again. A good story at a good price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky, intriguing and original, 30 Aug. 2013
This review is from: The Town [DVD] (DVD)
Great work from Andrew Scott and his sister in the story, Avigail Tlalim - genuine originals. The story is a little odd at times, but the interesting characters are very ingratiating. So glad I found this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tense and thrilling as always, 25 July 2013

The usual cast with some more shades of black and grey, and even the freemasons get a run! Ms Karlson shows some vulnerability but snaps back into character, and Pierre is as debonair as ever. Love this series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful continuation of the first series, 18 Feb. 2013

This review is from: Monroe - Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Witty, funny and filled with pathos. Our familiar friends from the first series are a little older and wiser, and a raft of new patients to be healed, helped and occasionally hurt. Great medical drama - pity this is the last of the series.


Single Father [DVD]

5.0 out of 5 stars This is wonderful...., 19 May 2012

This review is from: Single Father [DVD] (DVD)
Terrific acting from David Tennant and the other adults plus achingly good performances from his 5 'children'. Very interesting story that avoids the cliches (no funeral scene!), twisting and turning in a way that tempts you to watch it all in one sitting.

3.0 out of 5 stars This has not aged well..., 3 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: North Square [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
This is now 12 years old and the stories are creaky compared to a great new series like Silk. Maybe it was a standout at the time, but other legal dramas do it much better. Phil Davis's acting is now more accomplished, but Rupert PJ's characters are all the same. I persevered to the end and the last episodes improved, but an overall disappointment.

This review is from: Spiral Series 3 [DVD] (DVD)
The familiar cast of conflicted characters with some interesting twists. Plus lots of night work in the Paris underworld - this is fantastic. Hope there'll be more...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great performances and storytelling, 23 July 2011

This review is from: Silk - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
So many subtle touches and character insights in this excellent series. Maxine Peake is wonderful and Rupert Penry-Jones very good, but he must be tiring of these cad/bounder/pretty-boy roles - time for a change. I'm hoping there will be another series - any news on this?
