A historical perspective
1 May 2014 | by paul2001sw-1See all my reviews

Cosy detective dramas, with their cast of regular characters and improbably complex murders, are a staple of television everywhere; and in the search of some (mostly tame) variety, writers have tried historical as well as contemporary settings. 'Inspector de Luca' is such a series, with its setting in mid 20th century Italy. What raises it above the ordinary is that the scenario is not static: each of this four part series occurs in a different place and time, and the career of the titular Inspector unfolds against a backdrop of the rise and fall of fascism, and the subsequent evolution of postwar politics. The political portrait is not especially insightful (de Luca himself is apolitical, and there's a general message that all power corrupts), but nonetheless, its still interesting to see the mechanics of a detective drama worked out against different backgrounds, and the hero is not all-powerful in the contexts in which he has to work. The formula cannot, one presumes, be extended indefinitely; but with each episode offering something new, the series brings something absent from the predictable repetitiveness of most detective dramas.
