Uneven and overdone, though not entirely un-fun.
10 July 2018 | by kitellis-98121See all my reviews

A solid, well-paced little thriller, this by-the-numbers murder mystery manages to bring one or two surprises, along with a plethora of genre clichés and tropes.

By far the biggest problem with this four-part miniseries is that it seems to be trying a little too hard. The writing is melodramatic and heavy-handed, with every conceivable plot device thrown into the mix. The acting is uneven, with an overwrought turn by Juliet Stevenson and a phoned-in performance from John Lynch with his perennially bewildered face. Julie Graham plays herself as usual, and Adrian Edmondson overacts - nothing new there then!

But despite some subpar work from the veterans, the younger members of the cast are all excellent and give much more realistic and nuanced performances.

Unfortunately there are too many subplots and too many characters to make such a short series seem anything other than overdone. Ultimately it buckles under the weight of its many, many ingredients, and the final scenes degenerate into theatrics, with the one-that-done-it delivering a long soliloquy explaining the entire plot in possibly the most unrealistic expositional scene I've ever seen.

The music in the final episode also skirted dangerously close to plagiarising James Horner's music from both Apollo 13 and Sneakers!

Over all, though, despite my various criticisms, I enjoyed the series throughout, and it was so filled with plot (lots of it unnecessary) that I didn't entirely predict what was coming. It was also pretty nicely shot, in a no-nonsense workmanlike way, with very few visual clichés adding to those spewing from the page. I'd certainly watch it again - but then, I enjoyed Deathtrap. Just saying.
