Product description

Product Description

Case Histories is a detective series set in contemporary Edinburgh, adapted from Kate Atkinson's best-selling novels and devised for television by Ashley Pharoah (creator of Life on Mars). Private investigator Jackson Brodie is played by Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter; The Patriot). A former soldier and policeman, Jackson's tough-guy exterior belies a deeply empathetic heart. He's unable to resist coming to the rescue and is a magnet for the bereaved, the lost and the dysfunctional. Intriguing, moving and funny, the character driven stories conjure up a richly imagined world in which Jackson Brodie attempts to bring resolution to the victims of unexplained mysteries and comfort to the survivors of personal tragedies. He is the ultimate survivor himself--a bruised optimist, compelled to help others.

Includes all episodes from series 1 and 2.

From Amazon.co.uk

Any television drama that gives Jason Isaacs a lead role instantly warrants some kind of attention. And with Case Histories, there’s more than just the leading man to warrant the attention. While on the surface, it might look like just another detective series, there are a couple of choices that make it just a little bit more intriguing.

The main focus of Case Histories is less on the procedural of solving a case, and more on the characters. Stories are split into two episodes apiece, and are based on the popular series of novels by Kate Atkinson.

There’s a lot to enjoy here, in a welcome and mature piece of television drama, but Case Histories isn’t a perfect beast. There are concessions made for the small screen that aren’t going to please fans of the books, and a high degree of belief suspension is required to get the most from it. Yet the presence of the perfectly-cast Isaacs is ample compensation for all of this. His performance is magnetic, powering the show forward even through its quieter moments.

This is, in short, quality drama, well executed and very well played. More Case Histories would be very much appreciated… --Jon Foster --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.
