Did You Know?


When DCI Maggie Brand (Tamsin Greig) learns that a witness she needs to interview is in Schwerin, Germany, she's told that she can fly there via either Hamburg or Frankfurt. Hamburg is in northwestern Germany, Frankfurt in central-southern Germany and Schwerin is in northeastern Germany. Flying to Hamburg and then driving to Schwerin (as Maggie does in the film) makes sense; going there via Frankfurt does not. See more »

Un-challenging fodder for undemanding viewers.
12 July 2018 | by kitellis-98121See all my reviews

This is the sort of low-level armchair mystery that, I assume, is favoured by menopausal women who enjoy books by Ruth Rendell and the like. There's nothing wrong with any of that, of course, but very early into watching this series I began to feel that my intelligence was being insulted.

Surely I cannot be the only one who "solved" the case less than a third of the way in. And I doubt that I was alone in reaching an IMMEDIATE diagnosis for Greig's character's son, despite nearly three episodes of mindless denial from her.

I continued watching the series, mainly because I was hoping to be proved wrong; that there would be some ingenious twist at the end. There wasn't.

I was introduced to a cast of obvious red-herrings, dismissed them one-by-one using minimal amounts of logic and common sense, and arrived at a reasonable and likely conclusion, which was confirmed at the end, leaving me with little more than a mild form of self-satisfaction (which is distasteful and unattractive even to myself), and the rather gloomy thought that I am now three hours closer to my death.

Ultimately I would describe this offering as moderately diverting fluff. Perhaps the most entertaining aspect of the series was racking my brains trying to remember what I recognised Darren Boyd from.
