Quite a bit different from the first season. Very dramatic. Look forward to season 3.

First time I've seen this series and it's interesting. Quite different from most British mysteries. Look forward to seeing more seasons.

See extras. First season is how they got together. Second season on what could tear them apart.
Points of view on death penalty. How various people affected by death of teenager.

Expected this series to be much better than it is. At times the plots are implausible.

This series is a delight to watch. The story lines are well developed as are the characters, including the friendship between the inspector and vicar. I really appreciate that the Vancouver Public Library is carrying this series, thank you.

Great stories, excellent cast, well acted dramatic crime series with unlikely duo of a cop and a priest. Highly recommended.

I am hook, line and sinker taken by this series. I love the rich tapestry of character development that keeps me on the edge of my seat. 5 stars

Still engrossing: the series gets darker and intense, friendships fracture but somehow hold, closeted homosexuality takes a poignant toll, Dickens the puppy grows up, and the old cliche of "money can't buy happiness" is deftly represented by spacious, echoing rooms and a baby's knit sweater. I look forward to the next series. One minor nit: the creator does a normally superb job of detailing crime scenes at the right level of complexity. In one of the stories, there's a cheesy repeated action shot of a hanging that detracts from the moment.

Excellent series that shows 1953 was not as conformist as we commonly think it is. James Norton takes center stage as the sensitive, intelligent vicar growing sometimes painfully into not just adulthood, but a role as community leader. He stumbles into a real friendship with the local, heavy-drinking cynical detective. The stories are well-crafted; the flashbacks to war violence and its effects are integral, not gratuitous. He has two love interests, both very different from each other. The older actress who plays his grumbling housekeeper of course hides a heart of gold underneath. Hoping they produce more of this series.

Violence: War flashbacks (horrific death of younger friend) and untreated PTSD (suicides).
