Editorial Reviews

A single-mom cop who brooks no nonsense at home or on the job.

When strangers ask Janine Lewis what she does for a living, she tells them, "crisis management." And she s not kidding. As detective chief inspector, she supervises a squad of cops investigating some of Manchester s most brutal, highly publicized crimes. As a single mom, she wrestles with soccer practices, field trips, and schoolwork for her four children. She handles her daily crises with energy and aplomb, protecting her kids as well as the detectives under her command with a fierce maternal affection.

Award-winning actress Caroline Quentin (Jonathan Creek, Men Behaving Badly) portrays Janine with the perfect combination of toughness and tenderness. And Ian Kelsey (Casualty) brings a subtle vulnerability to his role as DI Richard Mayne, the lead detective on Janine s team. These tense, tightly plotted mysteries show the everyday trials and triumphs of a woman balancing career and family.

This collection combines all four previously released sets of Blue Murder.

"Blue Murder: Sets 1-4," now comes to us as a nice fat box set. The Blue Murder pilot debuted in the U.K. in May 2003, on ITV (Independent Television Stations); where it drew almost 8.4 million viewers, a number seldom heard of there. The series, which was created by midlands author Cath Staincliffe, has continued to do very well in the U.K., consistently ranking number one in its time slot. It has, unfortunately for us, never aired on broadcast TV here: the "San Francisco Chronicle" calls it "The best British mystery you haven't seen...." So, luckily, we can at least get it on DVD. Even more luckily, Acorn Media has given us subtitles, as this production is located in Manchester. And the performers have been encouraged to trot out their local patois. Which, while the Manchester accent and usage fall interestingly on the ear, giving us pleasurable local flavor, we're not all that familiar with them this side of the pond.

To begin with Manchester, it sure has cleaned up very well: centuries of black industrial grime gone, revealing a beautiful city, with interesting, varied architecture. And a diverse, varied population: the M.E. in the current series is surely a descendant of the Indian subcontinent.

The series stars the talented, award-winning actress Caroline Quentin, who was once best known as a comic actor (Jonathan Creek - Season One; Men Behaving Badly - The Complete Collection (The Original British TV Series);
