Editorial Reviews

Following the phenomenal success of the first series, Prescription for Murder delves into the world of pharmaceutical testing where scrupulous scientific ethics may be sorely tested when huge profits await the success of a new drug. Journalist Terry Corcoran (Finbar Lynch) and Maureen Boland (Orla Brady), now editor of a glossy Sunday supplement, uncover corruption linking politicians to big business.

After watching the first season of Proof (that dealt with politcal corruption, human trafficking, money laundering schemes, and the world of journalistic ethics), we were very pleased to find this DVD set here on Amazon, season two in this series: 'Proof: Prescription for Murder.' Its storyline deals with the international drug companies' unscrupulous business tactics.

Set in Dublin, this captivating series focuses on the issues of today's Ireland, but they are global in scope and dealt with quite realistically. (Issues like multi-national companies' machinations in cahoots with corrupt politicians, human trafficking across national borders with immigration officials turning a blind eye, police corruption, the role of the media and how it is manipulated to conceal 'the real story' from the public, and so on.) A highly realistic sub-theme of season two, for example, is the tension between immigrants and working class Irish, as well as racism and discrimination.

But what makes this series really work are the two main characters, Terry Corcoran (Finbar Lynch) and Maureen Boland (Orla Brady) who really begin to grow on you. They are not merely heroic but each also has his or her blind spots and human flaws. While facing conflicts in their personal lives, we watch as they take huge risks in order to expose scandals and conspiracies that reach into the homes of every Irish citizen. And we applaud them, often for the small-scale victories (and for Finbar Lynch's character's humanity). Why? Because dealing with the larger-scale problems they are exposing require much more than two individuals alone can achieve, and yet small-scale victories make a difference.

Verified Purchase
After the rousing first installment in this Irish conspiracy series, the second part -unconnected to the first plot except for the same lead characters and actors - deeply disappoints. Lazy scripting, a lot of padding, and plot that promises to be complex and brilliant (like the first) and then turns thin.
