Set in Dundee, yet not a single discernable attempt at a local accent... and 95% of shooting obviously done in Bolton. S2 is almost a completely different show, featuring terrorism and bombs. The trial stuff felt tacked on and should have been in s1 since the 3 actors involved basically left after ep2 of s2. Odd.

Agreed that the lack of a local dialect was glaringly obvious but it was the scriptwriting that disappointed me most. Without resorting to spoilers I can honestly say that given a fairly good premise for a whodunnit the writers failed miserably in many ways to provide a story that was believable and intelligent. Far too many implausible incidencies throughout the script which were almost comical at times. Ecpected better from a program which included some very good actors but unfortunately they can only deliver the lines that are written for them.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter πŸ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
