Great offbeat series
This was a fun series with neat twists and engaging lead characters. Nicely drawn albeit eccentric lead character with great support from the always likable Alex Kingston (ER, Hope Springs and Doctor Who's River Song), the always good to see again, Don Warrington (remembered as one of "Rigsby's" tenants in the wonderful British comedy, Rising Damp). Reece Shearsmith is well known for his offbeat comedic characters and after a sinister portrayal as a sociopath in The Widower it was good to see him offer another obtuse, but different, characterisation. Hopefully the cliffhanger ending to season one will be resolved....sometime soon.
