| Another above-the-average British miniseries
This millennium has seen a big blooming of solid (mini-)series, often at the expense of films focusing on topics and audiences not to my taste any more. New angles and approaches have been developed or deepened, and distinct performers employed. Being a vast country with numerous distinct folks and regions, the UK has an endless potential to "fit in" crimes into dozens of places where local and tourists can have their joy of recognition.

The Field of Blooda takes us into the 1980ies Glasgow, when the biggest technical facilitators for both the police and journalism were pagers and then unconnected PCs... On the other hand, you could smoke and drink almost everywhere and a lot :) The crimes were still severe, and journalists have always had to "be creative" for obtaining information, but the world in those days was rather reserved than open.

Apparently the atmosphere is well created and the characters realistic, but the leading performance (Jayd Johnson as Paddy Meehan) fell down on two smaller performances - David Morrissey as Murray Devlin and Peter Capaldi as Dr. Pete Walker, particularly in dialogues. Thus "only" 7 points from me, as I have recently seen UK crime series more versatile and interesting, e.g. Shetland, What Remains, Luther, and others.
