Keith Allen is definately not 'eye candy' thats for sure. I actually think it is a rather ridiculous programme.All those meaningful quotes at the beginning and end. Another daftish programme is DCI Banks, I won't bother with that one either. If Bryan Ferry was the detective I might stay with it.
It is indeed far less interesting than Trevor Eve but then most things are. Even the resident "weirdo" doesn't set me alight although I do like a dysfunctional character. I've watched two weeks. I'm not sure there'll be a third.
