DI Thorne TV Series DVD,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thorne: Sleepyhead & Scaredy Cat [DVD] (DVD)
I really like the Tom Thorne novels so really wanted to see this TV adaptation - each story is in 3 parts and I would say the episodes improved as they went along. I realised how difficult it can be to get the whole story across in such a short time frame as I did feel having the knowledge of the books that quite a few elements were skimmed over and the same tensions not allowed to build - maybe they would have been better as a longer series!! I liked some of the characters, others I found less believable. It struck me as though it was trying in part to be 'American' cop show. Overall I enjoyed the DVDs as long as I didn't allow myself to get too hung up on similarities to the book.
