Forgettable
25 June 2011 | by zimmermansteinSee all my reviews

Shallow and predictable. Perfect for an American TV equivalent. The writing is obvious and sensational. The core cast's acting is abominable. The foil, Keeley Hawes is employed as a prop. Her presence is insufferably stilted. The show is a sound effects bonanza. John Lunn's music is dated, generic, and aggressively overused. The most enjoyable moments of the series are in episode five, thanks only to Clive Russell.

The director, the writer, and the creator helped to make many episodes of the inspirational 'Waking the Dead', notably the final story, 'Waterloo'. But all the richness of that great show is lost to 'Identity'. This is the police procedural fallen victim to the lowest common denominator and, probably, decision by committee.
