A piece of Television that is worth watching. Cast is fresh & new. Purefoy is completely HOT, but makes his character believable, it wasn't until recently that I've seen some of his work (Vanity Fair); which was OH SO REMARKABLE. Campbell & Martin are great. Campbell with her elegant way (I hope to see her funny side (like in 3 to tango) in moderation) & Martin with his more 'series' role. Booth is new for me as an actress, but I look forward to seeing what she can bring. I didn't think I watch the show, but I'm glad that I did. I would give it a 10, but because of the "time slot" I'm stuck at 9 out of 10. A MUST WATCH.
