4.0 out of 5 stars The clue is in the name

The eponymous Quirke lives up to his name, as played by Gabriel Byrne: haunted and troubled by the kind of early life experiences only at first hinted at but gradually, as the series progresses, revealed in all their sordid...

3.0 out of 5 stars Missed opportunity, sadly.
I'm a big fan of the actors in this series. Gabriel Byrne has been in some of my favourite films, particularly Miller's Crossing, and is faultless. Michael Gambon is a master at making fine acting look easy. I've also enjoyed the books which this series was based on, so naturally I was looking forward to sitting back and simply letting myself enjoy what should have been...

When this was on tv people moaned about the actors mumbling, yet I didn't find that with Quirke at all. I found it very enjoyable.

Similar to the "Philomena" story and just as moving. Gabriel Byrne is utterly believable in the title role, the tortured, chain-smoking, alcoholic Quirke. It's not a happy story, but it rings true from start to finish.

Excellent show!! I love intrigue. This kept me on the edge of my seat!! I had to get this via Amazon.uk.com, and then I had to invest in a Region 2 DVD player to watch it. LOL!! But it was so worth it!!

Brilliant, top acting from a top cast. Highes and lowes that you would expect from a drama. Great story lines , I know an alchahlic, his portrayed was close to the mark. Over all a very good watch.

An easy series to watch, excellent acting. It was hard to see Quirke a victim of the drink, but that's life and a much more realistic series than American chick flick series, I enjoyed it

A very dark dvd made in dark streets. It's quite a tame show but easily watchable. Set in the 50's it isn't like todays police shows but it is good just the same.

Excellent and interesting peformance from Gabriel Byrne. Wish he'd find a better barber! Great plots, and different from your usual crime investigations.
