Excellent Stories, Acting Ensemble & Film Production,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thorne: Sleepyhead & Scaredy Cat [DVD] (DVD)
After the superb performance by David Morrissey as "Bradley Headstone" in Dickens' "Our Mutual Friend", I wasn't quite sure if I could take Morrissey seriously as DI Thorne in Thorne: Sleepyhead & Scaredy Cat. But I'm glad I took the risk and bought this dvd sight unseen as I could not be sure I'd ever see it broadcast in the U.S. or via BBC America. Once again David Morrissey pulled off an excellent performance as well as the entire acting ensemble who worked together very well together. The screenplays were excellently written & the film production was fabulous!. These stories had me on the edge of my seat especially with respect to the Scaredy Cat episode. I hope to see more Thorne stories on dvd in the future and in the meantime, I'll have to give Mark Billingham's Thorne novels a read.
