Return to form
on 12 March 2017
After a couple of pretty drab efforts where Rebus was threatening to turn into a cartoon of himself, Saints is a welcome return. A looping, convoluted plot gives ample space for all the acerbic wit and street smarts of Rebus to once more come to the fore. Malcolm Fox is slowly but surely developing into an interesting character and Soibhon Clarke is equally back to being a stand alone force, not merely a side kick.
But it's the Fox/Rebus combo that promises most. A series revitalised.
