Aden Young plays Daniel to perfection, creating a quiet, thoughtful and troubled character the audience can't help but connect with. There really isn't a weak link in the cast, and it's refreshing in the sense that it lets the story and the characters breathe, rather than rushing the plot forward at the expense of the narrative. Don't be worried though, there is not one scene that is boring or overdrawn. It really was a pleasure watching this well-crafted drama, and it raises so many interesting questions about crime and its effect on the families of the victims and the accused, as well as the pressure created on high profile crimes to catch the killer, and whether this leads to mistakes with devastating consequences.
It took a while to get going to build up the background of the story and to establish the characters. Once done, the story becomes very powerful. There are lots of veiled references to the harrowing violence to which he was subjected. It was as though I didn't want to be proved right because that would mean that the experiences of the protagonist were awful in the extreme!
The acting is top- notch and brings life and gravitas to this story. At times very claustrophobic, this made a very impressive piece of viewing!
Sadly, it is the main character, Daniel, who is the most frustrating to watch; doesn't say much, thousand yard stare etc. The rest of the cast are much more believable and do their best to keep your interest, just don't expect any action, or revelations (which this show really needs).
You don't get much sense of where the story is going from this series, and I suspect this may follow the, all to familiar, American TV box set tradition of spinning things out to make you keep buying the next season.
Haven't decided if I'm going to shell out for another 6 episodes of going nowhere, however stylish....
