I get why they're doing it - perhaps it worked on radio better - but I hate the direct to camera, breaking the 4th wall schtick.

Brilliant show. The personal impact of the crimes that Annika conveys to the viewer, directly facing the lens, pulls you in to the storyline and gives a direct insight into how she copes in her role. Fantastic cast and fantastic acting with strong story lines. Highly recommended.

It took me an episode to get into this series. The draw was always Nicola Walker but the writer has her breaking the 4th wall (which is stage speak for talking directly to the audience) which I found off-putting at first, and the tone of the series is rather stripped down and sterile. But, the humour, the disarming frankness of our heroine, the relationship between mom and daughter, the episodic crimes and, of course, the brilliant work of Nicola, soon won me round. Inevitably, I found myself chuckling at the final one liners that her character addresses to the camera as the episode ends. I give this series a 7 (good) out of 10. [Crime Dramedy]

As with any production she is a part of, Nicola Walker was the draw for me to this series. Plus, I worked as a police officer for 30+ yrs, so I was intrigued to hear "Marine Homicide Unit". Rarely any shows using this division as a base. Something different. Also different was the director's filming style. Ms. Walker's character breaks the 4th wall (speaks directly to the camera) throughout the series. This gives viewers an inner monologue of thoughts, feelings, & ideas. The director did a good job (IMHO) of not over-using this technique. Ms. Walker can easily convey her character's emotions & thoughts through her acting skills. She is able to combine this filming technique and her skills very easy. The overall show was not the deep, intriguing, drama I had hoped for (think Unforgotten & The Split). But it was different and entertaining. The banter between Annika & her daughter, Morgan (Silvie Furneaux) was right on target when dealing with a teen. And Annika's after-thoughts were pretty humorous at times. But honestly, without Nicola Walker as the lead actress, I probably would not have watched passed episode 2. But give it a try.

I knew nothing about this show and only tuned in when I saw Nicola Walker was involved. I LOVE this show.. it's a very good drama that has also got a typical Scottish dark, subtle humour thrown in for good measure. hope there's more seasons to come. 10/10

One of very few times I've actually liked the breach of the forth wall, they really manage to pull it off in a great way. Nicola Walker is brilliant, her part alone make it worth the watch but it's a great show overall. So with that said it will probably not get a second season as with most shows I really like...
