good show but way tooooo many repeat flashbacks. When the protagonist is looking at something in the water in episode 3, we really don't need another flashback to know what's going on in his mind. We've seen the scene many times and don't need it spelled out again!

These two discs contain three of Kate Atkinson's detective novels. The stories are rather pedestrian, but Edinburgh looks beautiful.

“Case Histories”: tarnished detective on a mission = his redemption, through myopic work distractions; Like so many of us, he's good at what he does, not always good at who he is. I hope the author writes more on this.

A couple of stories from the "Case Histories" collection, strung out to mini-series size. Some damage to the plots, and the characters feel a bit off.

This left me wanting more. Jason Isaacs is terrific as always. Edinburgh has never looked more beautiful. The stories are a bit contrived, but interesting none the less. Interesting and engrossing characters, especially the women.

Very interesting series, but even my American husband needed subtitles to understand. Beautiful places, makes you want to go visit Edinburgh.

Jason Isaacs is good but the other characters and story lines did not quite come together. Just a little off in terms of being believable, engrossing.. Janice 21383's synopsis is better than the show itself!

Loved it. Stories complicated so pay attention!

Sexual Content: A very disturbing scene where a child provides sexual pleasure for her own father. Sickening and unnecessary.

Violence: Some very violent scenes, with lots of blood.
