Once I hit 50 shows, I’ll assemble a Top 10 list.
In the meantime…
Line of Duty (2012-2021) Season 2
Three police officers are killed in an ambush and a protected witness is seriously injured, the only surviving officer is DI Lindsay Denton (Keeley Hawes), but suspicion soon arises and the team of AC-12 have more investigating work to do.
My thoughts: I liked season 1 enough to keep going with this series and I’m glad I did because season 2 fires on all cylinders.
Dalgliesh (2021 – ) Season 2
Follows Dalgliesh’s crime-fighting career from 1970s England to the present day.
My thoughts: Another solid season of this cozy mystery series.
Full Circle (2023 – )
An investigation into a botched kidnapping uncovers long-held secrets connecting multiple characters and cultures in present day New York City.
My thoughts: Crosses the line between complex and convoluted. I found myself shaking my head at some of the character decisions and plot developments.
A Confession (2019)
DSU Stephen Fulcher intends on catching a killer of a missing woman, even if that may cost him his career and reputation.
My thoughts: A fairly standard procedural.
The Chestnut Man (2021)
A young woman is found brutally murdered in a playground and one of her hands is missing. Above her hangs a small man made of chestnuts.
My thoughts: Slow burn thriller that relies on incompetent police work and questionable decision-making pull off its twisted plotting.
