These series has one distraction, Jennie Jacques Eyes
Jennie Jacques portrays all the ambitions, fears & acceptances of young women in 1956 England. I let myself go when watching the case solving, but I forget the plot when the camera is focused on her. I literally have to shake my head at times to follow the story.
I really like the scenes where she's not on camera. But from the first 5 minutes of episode one, she's the portrayed character I want to see next.
Not her fault, but Jennie Jacques' eyes are too magnetic. That said, the little known supporting cast are drawn from the deep well of British acting talent. This was Britain in 1956.
That I found Jennie Jacques' beauty distracting should not deter others from giving this a first viewing. She did what the writers & director dictated, & her performance is worthy of high praise.
I mark this down because of formulaic writing, but I mark it up because of the ensemble performances.
This is series worthy of watching.
