I'm a big fan of mystery series (Morse, Endeavour, etc.), so I was curious to view the "Roadhill" film and see what Mr. Whicher was all about. I read about the series and about the real Mr. Which on Google before I watched this first episode. What a wonderful experience! The story takes a while to unfold, but it does in such a way that by the end you feel like you understand why Mr. Whicher conducted the investigation the way he did. Paddy Considine is perfectly cast as Mr. Whicher. His face expresses multiple emotions, and unlike most modern detectives, he generally keeps his cool and behaves with decorum and decency to the innocent and guilty alike. The story unfolds like the layers of an onion constantly unfolding new bits of information about the characters involved in the case. The costumes and sets are fabulous and the cast is very believable. If you want action and adventure this is not your show. However, if you want to enjoy a fascinating story that is very well acted this is a film for you. After watching this first episode I watched the other three that are available. I wish that the BBC had produced more episodes in this marvelous series.
