Trivia

In Series 2 Episode 2, DI Jack Armstrong (Toby Stephens) states the assumption that DI Georgina Dixon (Miranda Raison) was "watching endless episodes of 'Poirot'". Both actors played characters on Poirot; Toby Stephens as Philip Blake in "Five Little Pigs" (S9;E1) and Miranda Raison as Mademoiselle Blanche in "Cat Among the Pigeons" (S11;E2). DI Kate Bishop (Lucy Punch) did as well as Susannah Henderson in "After the Funeral" (S10;E3). See more »

First series 7... Second series 4
8 October 2013 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

This is odd little police procedural from Britain. DI Jack Armstrong (Toby Stephens) is a Neanderthal misogynist.

The first series had 3 episodes where Armstrong is teamed with DI Kate Bishop (Lucy Punch). She's neurotic, witty, and sometimes violent. They are not Sherlock by any means, but they get the job done. It's their relationship that's the most fun. Something about Lucy Punch makes her adorable even when she's crazy.

The second series had 6 episodes and a new partner for Armstrong. Bishop is replaced with DI Georgina Dixon (Miranda Raison). She's a bland character and just doesn't have the witty exchanges like Lucy Punch. I could barely finish watching the first episode. The cases are still forgettable, and without the energetic Punch, this show becomes an unfunny bore.
