    This is a new detective drama in which Brenda Blethyn dressed as a bag lady is a chief inspector who seems slightly unhinged. I found it rather unconvincing.

  3. A lot of Wallender type outdoor scenes. Moody, atmospheric .Bleak with lots of dramatic sky.

    Liked the distinctive wide-angled camerawork, but lost the plot and didn't really care who the murderer was by the end.

    Who WAS the murderer? I must confess I missed half an hour of it in the middle but I didn't recognise the man in the caves or whatever who had captured the girl and I lost the plot early on.
     
  7. He was one of the four botanist/bird watchers...the one that gave Doctor thingy the hand drawn copy of the polaroid photograph.

    Did not like it at all. I love this actress but did not like the character she played. As for the actual murder mystery,there was no real mystery,it was just a matter of which guy out the the four had done it. Maybe it will get better but it's not grabbing me for now.

    I opted for Exile at 9.00pm on the BBC. I thought it was rather good and will watch the second part (of three) tonight. I then enjoyed Andrew Lloyd-Webber's programme on the Pre-Raphaelites - as much for what I leant about him as a person (even odder than I had imagined) as I did the movement itself.
     
  11. Exile is being saved for a back to back session.
    A two nighter on ITV tonight and tomorrow.

    He was the quiet one who had put his mother in a care home after caring for her for years.

    I used to live there ...well within walking distance
     
  17. I think its not that bad really...ok its not immensely challenging for BB to play a hard nosed chief from tyneside but its still watchable.
     
  18. if anything what annoys or irritates me is the constant ad breaks...
     
  19. just as I'm getting into it it suddenly stops for the ads and once again we are subjected to the tiresome mobile phone and fancy car ads...really fed up of those things.
     
  20. I had really high hopes what with Brenda being the lead but its awful.
    Is it taken from a book series? It might read better than watching ........?
    Last nights plot was plain stupid.
