Outstanding Suspense Drama,
This review is from: Salamander: The Complete Season One [DVD] (DVD)
This is a great series, well-acted and brimming with suspense. It is tight in a way a modern BBC production would be languid and riddled with limp PC dialogue. This has no padding and moves at a pace, quite impressive and realistic. The notion of the elite running the show behind the scenes fits Belgium nicely, especially with the EU overlay on Belgium's seedy politics but it does beg the question why the BBC could never produce such a drama about The City-Palace-Whitehall Establishment and dirty secrets...........too close to home.
I am really impressed by Salamander an expected not to be !

Just wondering why you expected to be unimpressed? I couldn't agree more about the BBC.
