Brían F. O'Byrne,
Det. Supt. Michael Walker, teamed with DI North and DCI Connor, follow each case from crime committed, through the pursuit of justice, to the law courts where the efforts of the force will be tested - sometimes to breaking point.
In the scene of the recording of anyone who had a heart, clearly visible on top of the upright piano is a pair of DT100 headphones. These wern't introduced until 1969, while the song was recorded in 1963. See more »
It's a biopic and historically inaccurate if you are a Beatles fan and know some of the actual history of the early Beatles years.
Having said that it is well produced and reasonably acted. It is quite entertaining if you like the period and accept it as a biopic which overlooks some of the facts like she was a waitress at the Zodiac cafe.
You will enjoy the program if you can overlook some of the details.
The main actress is likable, believable and performs well in the role. Her future husband comes across as rather doe eyed and almost submissive. The Beatles characters lack any depth and I think would have already been to Germany once by then if the year is supposed to be 1960/61.
I have only watched the first two of the three parts.
