Dire
8 July 2015 | by GewittySee all my reviews

Totally terrible casting. Generic plotting. The Interceptor desperately wants to be glossy and cool - but isn't. It's grey and tepid.

The members of this 'under-the-radar' covert squad look and behave more like the staff at a social services office. Not one of them manages to give a convincing performance. Even Trevor Eve, who usually delivers good characters, struggles with appearing menacing as a crime boss. Which is hardly his fault, given some of the lines he has to deliver.

All in all, The Interceptor is a pretty poor showing by BBC Drama Productions and only survives in its prime time slot because it's summertime and there's very little in the way of competition from other channels.

Thank Heaven for Netflix.
