Fix it for me
on 5 December 2009
I can't start to say how much I loved this. For some reason I completely missed this series on TV, when the second series started I was a bit lost so thought I'd get this and catch up. The characters of John Mercer, Callum, Rose and Lenny make an odd but fantastically watchable quartet.
It good on so many levels, subtle and nuanced, the characters (except Rose played woodenly by Tamsin Outhwaite) are real deeply believable and beautifully constructed. Andrew Buchan has the ability to portray the deepest emotions without speaking a word of dialogue. The relationships are beautifully acted with the main relationship between John and Callum so touching in parts, its like a love story.
It doesn't abuse the background music but ends every episode with a different completely appropriate track.
