Re: BBC Original British Drama

Good grief. Well it doesn't pull any punches. Overall I'd say The Shadow Line was unique in many ways and very well done. It's not often we get to watch a drama where the story not only takes centre stage but completely overshadows the characters in it. There were a few niggles, like Gatehouse's penchant for toying with his victims in some kind of psychological experiment. He only very rarely resisted the temptation to do this. It was a dramatic device, like Bond villains insisting on telling Bond the evil plot before sending him to his death, but it was overdone. There's a reveal at the end which is frankly ridiculous. You'll know what I mean. Aside from that, a terrific ride.
