5.0 out of 5 stars fast-paced, razor-sharp dialogue raises this crime drama above the rest, 2 July 2014
This review is from: Scott and Bailey - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Excellent crime series. I think this first series is actually the best. The script is superior and the acting superb. It was a clever idea to have a female cop (Rachel Bailey) who possesses many of the typically 'male' characteristics of the maverick lead. She drinks too much, swears and struggles to maintain a grown up relationship. Lesley Sharp's Janet Scott has the job of reining in her impetuous partner, providing her with advice and a shoulder to cry on. But this crime drama is also full of brilliant incidental characters, DCI Jill Murray is a creation of pure genius and she quite deservedly gets a bigger role in the next two series. The pace is fast and the dialogue witty and clever, sometimes you need to watch the episode again to fully appreciate the great one liners. Terrific actors and female characters of all ages make this a highly enjoyable and grown-up piece of television.
