This review is from: Dead Head [DVD] (DVD)
For years, I've heard how brilliant this series was, comparable to "Edge of Darkness" etc. Now that it's finally been released, I can say that it isn't. It's an ok little thriller with some nice touches along the way and an irritating fizzle-out ending that doesn't really make sense. There are some appallingly bad actors rubbing shoulders with the principals who really know their craft.
It looks great, with the 40s noir-feel contrasting with the 80s which was probably a very effective juxtaposition at the time. Sadly, now that the 80s are decades behind us, it all looks dated.
Worth a go if you're bored, but if you want something from this era that really worked, try "Edge of Darkness".

Tried Edge of Darkness - okay I suppose, but gave my copy away as I would never watch it again
