Entertaining. Good drama in it's day.
I had not seen this series before today.The first episode whilst not outstanding was well worth watching, decently acted and entertaining. However I couldn't help but note that no less than six of the actors had previously appeared with John Thaw as central characters in separate episodes of Inspector Morse:- George Costigan - The infernal serpent, Phyllis Logan - The daughters of Cain, Holly Aired - Last bus to Woodstock, John Shrapnal - Death is now my neighbour, Lisa Harrow - Sins of the father and Oliver Ford Davies - Second time around. There may have been others I had not spotted. I wonder if Thaw was instrumental in selecting the cast based upon their performances in the crime series.
