Riveting stuff only slightly spoilt by some shonky camera work.

Good to see this back, though I haven't yet watched episode 1.

SlasherBindman - 13 Feb 2014 10:45:21 (#5 of 1974)

Avoid the link at #2 for the moment MELSM.

Thanks, Slasher, I just sailed past when I saw 'spoilers'. It's a problem when so many of us probably watch these good TV things over several days rather than at time of broadcast.

Poobie - 13 Feb 2014 10:54:33 (#7 of 1974)

It was a rollercoaster of tension. Excellent tv.

Shabbyman - 13 Feb 2014 10:59:23 (#8 of 1974)

#3 was it NYPD Blue that started all that camera-fidget? Just stand still ffs.

smiggy - 13 Feb 2014 11:11:12 (#9 of 1974)

It can be done well. Can't think of an example off the top of my head though.

Any thread like this will have spoilers. Best not to click until you are up to date. One of the main characters (you thought) won't see episode 2, for example.

SlasherBindman - 13 Feb 2014 11:13:47 (#11 of 1974)

#9

Festen.

smiggy - 13 Feb 2014 11:15:44 (#12 of 1974)

Didn't watch that, Shads. I think that when it is done well it is unnoticeable, just part of the ebb and flow of the whole.

JohnIlly - 13 Feb 2014 11:22:08 (#13 of 1974)

We turned off The Thick of It after 5 minutes because we were starting to get motion sickness from the hand-held camera work.

staticgirl - 13 Feb 2014 17:47:42 (#14 of 1974)

Cracking stuff. I followed it with Suspects on Channel 5. More cop action with even more shaky-cam found footage type naturalism. Not bad either.

I had to look hard to check if that was really Keeley Hawes. The tension was well paced and we were blindsided most satisfactorily. What a horrible outcome for one character in a shocking scene.

I've always liked Adrian Dunbar.

staticgirl - 14 Feb 2014 11:48:36 (#17 of 1974)

I actually thought she looked younger and nicer without all the slap. But no we really don't want to be going down the road of actors looking perfect even when playing people who really shouldn't look like models.

Shabbyman - 14 Feb 2014 14:39:42 (#18 of 1974)

Not unlike Helen Mirren in Prime Suspect.

1MELSM - 14 Feb 2014 20:36:50 (#19 of 1974)

An impressive episode one. Who wouldn't be hooked by it?

pampas - 16 Feb 2014 13:11:10 (#20 of 1974)

Great stuff, the hospital scene was awful (in a good way). What happened to the policemen on guard though?
