You're All Nicked!
on 8 February 2014
This is a splendid piece of work as a body is found in a loft of a building split into a number of flats. The place has enough red herrings to start a small fish shop but gamely gives you every possible clue (and then a few more). Every flat-owner has issues. The investigating officer has a few of his own too, but is played with admirable calm by David Threlfall. In a genre that, in the UK, is full with old thespians chewing scenery with yet another unlikely serial killer: this series is all the more effective of involving suspects who are all too ordinary and an officer who looks like he just might know a bit of procedure. At four episodes be prepared for the temptation to watch them all in one fell swoop.
The series did sell me more than one dummy as I'd have nicked several more wrong suspects before being investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission....
