Gripping, Agatha Christie Type Suspense Thriller
This was very much a modern Agatha Christie, all the possible murders were assembled and what a bunch!
I loved it, just everything was in place, what a cast everyone was brilliant and the script was so well written and the actors just flew with it. The director was meticulous in his attention maintaining a comprehensive atmosphere of claustrophobia and menace, there were even some Hitchcock angles, wow!
We had incredible character development and in episode 3 it stepped up a gear, this was quite masterful, and the use of music to display nuanced emotion was a triumph. The dramatic impetus was near frantic with a near animalistic intensity.
One plot element that seemed to me unnecessary, the main detective didn't need to be retired, didn't need to have near OCD in investigating the case, didn't need to practically be under investigation by his own colleagues. This added nothing to the plot and just proved to be a distraction.
We need a series two, let the man survive his wounds, more of this please.
