This review is from: Above Suspicion Three - Deadly Intent [DVD] (DVD)
Anna Travis, played by Kelly Reilly, returns as a Detective Inspector in series three. She is asked to join Detective Superintendent James Langton, played by Ciaran Hinds. This time they're investigating the death of Langton's friend, and fellow detective, chasing a drug dealer who has had plastic surgery and plays around with Fentanyl. Remember Jackson's death by Fentanyl, well, this is the same dangerous drug.
The third series follows a continuation of what came before. An attractive female detective, her tough boss, and a mystery to solve. The show continues the tension between the two leads. Both are obviously attracted to the other but neither can say anything . DI Travis is also fending off the attention of every male who comes her way. She dresses provocatively, and with those six inch heels, how could a real detective get anywhere with those heels? Ridiculous, please!
The mystery has so many different angles in this plot. We have the drugs, sex, detective gone bad,so many people lying that it is difficult to keep track. This series is tried and true, and old. There are too many clues lost, found but not recorded, little organization, and a loss of interest at times. The series plays loose and long, and at times is hardly believable.
This 3 episode series was not worth the money. The ending leaves things way up in the air,and the two detectives running after an airplane is way beyond belief! We know very little about Travis except she is intelligent and sexy. This area of sexy detective pitted against the rest of the men in the squad is way overboard. DS Langton is up for promotion, and this mystery could end his career if all does not go well. Oh, jeez!
