This review is from: Murder Investigation Team: The Complete Series 1 [DVD]  (DVD)There must be no end of cop/police procedural shows out there, and in order to be noticed they have to stand out from the crowd in some way. I'm afraid this show fails to do so. After a promising start it descends into seen-it-all-before nothingness. The first story, involving the murder of Sgt Boyden, is clearly an attempt to attract fans of "The Bill". But don't expect the sharp storylines and memorable characters that show had in its heyday.
Unfortunately this series has no big or interesting characters. Why are so many police dramas these days full of shallow 'PC' coppers? The most popular TV detectives have always been the ones who bend and break the rules (Burnside, Frost, Regan etc). The camera-work in the series is just far too jerky and soon becomes distracting. Shows like "The Bill" had this kind of camera-work, but here it's taken too far and just seems as though the camera-man had one too many in the pub. The story-lines are weak and uninteresting, and at the end of the day this is just another "might have been".
