His second sight is his second chance.
AS SEEN ON MASTERPIECE MYSTERY!
In this mystery thriller series created by award-winning writer Paula Milne (The Politician's Wife), dynamic and successful Detective Chief Inspector Ross Tanner (Clive Owen Inside Man) is investigating the brutal murder of a 19-year-old youth. Ambitious Detective Inspector Catherine Tully (Claire Skinner Bridget Jones's Diary) is seconded to Tanner's team to assist with the case.
During the inquiry, Tanner discovers that he is losing his sight. At first, he is defiant about the diagnosis, insisting on a second opinion, but increasingly, he is unable to escape the appalling truth about his condition. Terrified, he tells no one. When Tully realises the nature of his secret, she agrees to guard it - on certain conditions that will further her career.
As a disturbing side-effect of his diminishing sight, Tanner experiences bizarre visions and his other senses erupt to fill the growing black void. Instinctively, Tanner uses the hallucinations as clues to solving the murder, knowing that he must re-invent his methods and develop this "second sight" to keep working and survive.
INCLUDES: Second Sight, Parts One & Two / Hide and Seek / Parasomnia / Kingdom of the Blind
Claire Skinner is, as always, expert and enjoyable to watch but its Clive Owen's show all the way.
And it works on many levels, as a human drama, a straight police investigation and a metaphorical probe into what is, and what merely appears to be.
Clive Owen is wonderful.....there is plenty of drama, humor and murder to make the plots intriguing.....and of course....passion....

For those who need English subtitles, this DVD doesn't provide them. That made the difference for us, and it was returned to Amazon.Published 10 months ago by Joyce
I have enjoyed the themes around the stories. However, because I often have difficulty understanding the "English", I would have fared far better had there been subtitles. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Louise E. Booth
