3.0 out of 5 stars Not As Good As Good As Previous Series, 27 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of all, there are fewer episodes.
Secondly, the stories are of very mundane, everyday challenges with very little depth to the stories or outcomes. We found ourselves quite dissatisfied, asking 'So what....' after each episode.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hammy Overacting, and Implausible Plots, 27 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This box set was quite a let down.
First, the plots were implausibly complex - but I suppose that's just Lynda La Plante.
Ciaran Hinds' overacting was overdone, and there were inconsistencies in the character he played. For example,he chastises one of his staff for arguing in front of others, yet his own handling of his staff is terrible.
Kelly Reilly comes across as an immature schoolgirl, yet manages to reach the rank of DI during the series.
Very clumsy stuff.
Now Broadchurch - that is classy British crime drama.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classy Scandinavian Crime Series, 28 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wallander is addictive, as most Scandinavian crime dramas are. The characters are very believable, and the acting is the usual Swedish subtle, not overdone, performances. Very, very enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, classic British spy thriller, 28 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Page Eight [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
Good plot, very good performances from the usual British acting suspects. The plot is not overly complex or unbelievable, and the acting is subtle and polished. Oh that the USA could produce classy films like this!
