I have to say I thought this was going to fall flat on its face. I'm sure like other posters that I had gotten so used to the way the US show was directed, acted, and written I simply assumed the British version would jar somewhat, after all it was being aired on ITV, and London is not New York.

I was shocked, it is somewhat more gritty than its US cousin, down to earth, and well adapted and directed, and it has traded suspense for dramatic effect to its credit.

The standard of acting is a little patchy, fine it is television, and the US version is more often that not a little top heavy. Michael Moriarty is one of the most talented actors I have ever had the pleasure to watch, much the same can be said about Sam Waterston, Jerry Orbach, S. Epatha Merkerson and Steven Hill, but the assistant DA's were often weak, and so were some of the other protagonists. In the UK show the guests have made a superb showing.

London does not have the mob figures of New York so it will be interesting to see how they translate those particular episodes. If you were thinking that it could not be as good, then I think you too will be in for a pleasant surprise.
