5.0 out of 5 stars Great detective series
Caroline Quentin is the main character in these series. She injects some humour into some pretty nasty crime stories but she, too, has dark moments. Her relationship with her straying husband and troublesome children cause her character much anguish.

The plots are well put together and the twists and turns as investigation progress keep your interest. Not...

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit far-fetched
My family is a great fan of crime-series, but this one left us feeling a bit bored and puzzled after a couple of seasons.

Caroline Quentin, while doubtless a wonderful actress, is just not believable enough in the role of single mum/police inspector/love object of sexy hulk in which she has been cast here.

Add to that increasingly unlikely...

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Unpleasant Viewing the Second Time Around, 19 Oct 2012
This review is from: Blue Murder - Complete Series 1-5 [DVD] (DVD)
I purchased this series - in various pieces, until I had the complete set. Thought I really enjoyed it the first time it was viewed. After a few years, I sometimes re-watch what I remember as a good British mystery. Should have left well enough, alone - and sold it on Ebay. On the second view, Caroline Quentin as DCI Janine Lewis REALLY comes across as a jealous, spiteful, hateful, vengeful, man-hater. She certainly doesn't earn mother of the year awards, and cannot accept responsibility for her own miseries / mistakes. Yet, she truly tries to destroy anyone - who crosses her path (or is in her wide path) - who appear to be happy (or just plain together, and happy w/ themselves). She'll go out of her way to attempt to crush a man - even if he's innocent - she appears to view all men as something to weaken. And let's face it - this is no femme fatale.

I didn't notice it in the first viewing, but she could be the twin sister of a similar demon woman - whose path I crossed (and quickly escaped from) in 1984. If you're a guy, you might just want to pass this one by. Try something w/ class and dignity - like Lewis, Morse, Kavanagh, Foyle's War, New Tricks, Prime Suspect, Frost, George Gently, etc.
