Editorial Reviews

A lone cop fights crime and corruption in rural Ireland "Distinctly classy" —The Telegraph (U.K.) "Quietly brilliant" —The Sun (U.K.) "Compelling" —The Sunday Times(U.K.) "Hugely entertaining" —Evening Times (U.K.)

His position as local Garda sergeant puts Jack Driscoll (Owen McDonnell, Wild Decembers) at the heart of his community—and often at odds with it. Relationships are everything in his small Irish town, where Jack's professional life is inextricably bound with his private life and those of his neighbors. When two new arrivals come from England (Matthew McNulty, Lark Rise to Candleford and Simone Lahbib, Wire in the Blood), eager to discover family history in the area, Jack learns that the solutions to current crimes frequently lie in the distant past.

Filmed against the spectacular and foreboding backdrop of Connemara, the second set of Single-Handed contains three new feature-length crime dramas. Jack investigates the seemingly pointless killing of an elderly recluse, a murder dressed up as arson, and a local schoolgirl’s involvement with a Dublin pimp. Complex characterizations and riveting performances illuminate a world rife with moral ambiguity.

Oceanside Irish crime, believable characters, & Single-Handed sensational entertainment. Sgt. Jack Driscoll (Owen McDonnell) has beautiful faultless Irish brogue, since the actor was actually from Galway, the filming local. I was astounded with Set 1, now blown away with Set 2. Not as bloody as most UK crime shows, but with more emotional suspense, some romance, and...did I mention the dramatic rural beauty? A solid regular cast including Finbarr (David Herlihy) & Costello (Sean McGinley (The Hanging Gale).
This is Irish Copper Drama but could almost serve as a scenic views documentary if muted; since it is filmed in the Tully Cross & Connemara, arguably the rugged quarter of Heaven. Even see peat dug and stacked, all that's missing is the aroma & Guinness.

3 episodes each divided into 2 parts, each part 50 min. Each story has its own main plot, but the sub-plots and relationships developed in the first carry on through the entire set. It's compelling enough you may have to watch it all in one setting.

SUBTITLES included
THE LOST BOYS: An old man's body is found, and a local teen accused. A couple travels to Co. Galway with a mystery. Brian (Matthew McNulty- Lark Rise to Candleford: The Complete Season One) & Gemma (Simone Lahbib- Monarch of the Glen) look for his family, and a surprising family link is found with the help of Jack's mom, Eithne (Ruth McCabe). There's a deeper darker mystery that Jack must solve while finding a reason for an old recluse's death. Stephen Rea also guest stars.

BETWEEN TWO FIRES: An insurance arson case suddenly looks to be murder. Once again Jack's personal life conflicts with his Garda duty. Are friends involved in crimes?

Once again the series "Singlehanded" in its Season two (2) provided superior and wonderful entertainment. Season two (2) of "Singlehanded" is on three (3) discs with two (2) interrelated stories on each disc that are over an hour in length for each part of the episode.

Once again, former "big city" cop Jack Driscoll (superbly acted by "hunky" Owen McDonnell) is back in a small and very beautiful seaside village on the coast of Ireland. This little village is "ripe" with crime involving, extra marital affairs that lead to murder, child prostitution, rebellious teens, illicit love affairs, "shady" businessmen, etc. Jack Driscoll all by himself must confront a host of well written, "spine tingling" criminal activities.

Jack indeed confronts some really nasty situations this season that again seems to involve everyone including his own family in this small Irish village. Remember that the inhabitants of this village before Jack were very use to a much "looser" enforcement of the laws and of justice. Jack's father (his predecessor as "head cop") tended to turn "a blind eye" to the crimes occurring in the village. Jack Driscoll is a far "tougher" enforcer of the laws on all no matter who they may be which leads to some fascinating confrontations between him and the inhabitants of the village.

I really enjoyed Season two (2) of "Singlehanded" because it is so well acted, written and directed.

(By the way, I used the subtitles because the Irish accents could get a little thick.)

Am a big BBC/UK fan and purchased Part 1 without knowing anything about it. The basic premise is about the relocation of a Dublin cop, somewhat tarnished, to the hinterlands where he grew up. Now an adult, he finally realizes that there is crime and corruption even away from the big city. Each episode is, of course, about him solving another crime (not just your basic murder, but more convoluted and complicated crimes). I was pleasantly suprised and impressed and, as you can see, went on to purchase Part 2. The stories do not insult your intelligence, the actors are superb, and you can't help but be in awe of the fabulous northwest Irish scenery (makes you want to take a trip there to see the real thing!). The cast draws you in - they're real people, not Hollywood pretty faces. You become so engrossed in the story that, when done, you find yourself wanting more. I highly recommend this series for anyone who wants to see something a little different and done so very, very well.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Bruce Miller on August 1, 2012
I just finished the last episode of this series which made me appreciate all of the preceding episodes even more. It sort of all came together at the end. However, there was the usual ending where one could only hope to find another series or episodes. Not sure if anything is planned or what the release date might be, but it will be on the top of my list if something is announced. The scenery is spectacular (I often thought that it was filmed in the Pacific Northwest somewhere around Port Townsend) as it seemed so similar. The accents were a bit heavy and I found myself replaying the scenes so that I could follow everything. I am sure that I missed some of the subtleties, but it really wasn't a distracter. Jack always gets his man or his woman and his high morals are always on the verge of compromise by the exigencies which developed to deter him from his convictions. It is refreshing to see a story about the police (GARDA) where there are no guns and shoot em up scenes.
Overall, I would rate series II as the better of the two series, but it would be difficult to enjoy the second series without watching the first. I enjoyed the episodes and it was another production of Acorn Media that further enhanced its reputation for top quality productions ! I hope that you enjoy this series as much as I did
