I love Brit mysteries and this new series is one of the best. Well thought out plots and wonderful dialogue. They capture the feel of the sixties incredibly well. Worthwhile viewing.

Martin Shaw at his best and superb supporting cast. Best British Drama since Judge John Deed (which remains unavailable on DVD in Canada?)

As a fan of Martin Shaw, I am predisposed to like his work. However, this particular series has been good from the start and continues to be excellent. For those who are not familiar with U. K. productions, a "series" often only has a handful of episodes in a "season" and this should be noted. I have seen reviews elsewhere that comment in dismay that the "set" of DVDs only has a handful of episodes.

In this series Shaw portrays a detective who is noted for being less than personable in some instances. As the series starts he is shown at the interment of his late wife, who has been victim of a revenge killing. This forms the basis of the initial season of the series. From there, it builds into an excellent portrayal of both a detective struggling with a difficult past, and his young partner who is learning the ropes.

In general, I recommend the entire series, but it would be wise not to jump to the subsequent "seasons" prior to seeing the first episodes. After this first set the order, while important, matters less.

I wasn't sure about going back to the 60's but Gently hooked me in and now I'm a big fan.
