A good solid start, Burden is great in the role.
22 April 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Hugh Burden debuts as Mr J.G.Reeder, a man of great intelligence working in the public prosecutions department, a Public Servant who takes his duty very seriously.

In this case Mr Reeder looks into the case of Lady Tithermite's death, a wealthy woman who apparently went overboard on a ship. Reeder is dubious about her husband Sir James, who's now engaged to a wealthy young woman. Reeder must also deal with an ex con,Lew Kohl, who he helped convict. Reeder as a character has more going on then first observed, not quite the quirq, shrinking vilviohe makes out.

It's a very enjoyable first episode, the characters well established, the story interesting, and Hugh Burden very good in the lead role. John Bennett is a joy as always. It may be a little slow for some, but I enjoyed. 7/10
