A Gallant Hero!,
This review is from: Case Histories - Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Saw this on TV. I think I have fallen in love with Jason Isaac's Jackson Brodie! Such a versatile and excellent actor who has really brought the character to life and now that the series is over from the TV, I missed it more than I expected!
I originally thought this was the first series, which I missed when it was on TV and had to get on DVD.
My only complaints would be the endless clips of Jackson jogging with his childhood traumatic memory flashbacks interlaced with present day, which becomes rather laboured and tedious. Also the fact that he does get beaten up rather a lot!
I have read a couple of the Kate Atkinson novels which portray this character and also enjoyed other of her novels.
This drama series is a wonderful change from our beloved Morse and Lewis.
