Format: Blu-ray
DI Tom Thorne is the hero of Mark Billingham's cop novel series from London, the stereotypical dark big city loner with the hunches (as his squad rival says: why don't you try it the conventional way and search for clues and proof?) and with the problems in team work. His cases are nut cases and serial evil, and he adds to the darkness by his own behavior.
Sleepyhead was the first novel in the series and it is the first that has been turned into a TV mini series of 3 parts. We have a serial killer with medical knowledge. His victims seem to have died from heart attacks and are nearly mistaken for natural death cases. Then one victim survives, but is paralyzed. She learns to communicate by use of her eyes. She becomes a valuable witness.
This could be a very good straightforward thriller, a flirt between the DI and the treating medical doctor thrown into the bargain. That plus the cop squad rivalries would have filled a normal 90 minutes film, but for a mini-series of 3x 50 minutes, the story needs to be upgraded or stretched. What we get are flashbacks into a past case, involving a dark secret that the DI shares with the gay coroner. The new case is inexplicably linked to the old one. We have a suspenseful plot with some holes and numerous clichés. I would have rated the film 3 stars but for the following.

SPOILER: The ethical issues involved in the story are treated in a far too cavalier fashion for my taste. We are finding ourselves, literally, in the situation that we hope the DI gets away with murder. We also follow the thought process of the paralyzed victim of the killer and we agree with her that this is not the life for a formerly active young woman.

I found this show to be an extremly intense, "Edge of Your Seat" kind of suspence/mystery. The sort that you are not sure that you realy want to keep watching through to the end but have to. If you like shows like "Wire in the Blood" and "Waking the Dead" You should realy like this one, I did.

Format: Blu-ray
Now and then during channel surfing late at night there appears something new and unknown that results in making the viewer wish for more. Such is the case for the series THORNE. It is a high tension thriller of a series.

`Thorne' is DI Tom Thorne (David Morrissey) who in the Sleepyhead episode enters an investigation into a mysterious serial killer. His first three victims ended up dead. His fourth was not so fortunate. Alison Willetts (Sara Lloyd-Gregory ) is unlucky to be alive. She has survived a stroke, deliberately induced by manipulation of pressure points on the head and neck. She can see, hear and feel, she is aware of everything going on around her, but she is unable to move or communicate. In leaving Alison alive, the police believe the killer's made his first mistake. And it is this kind of complex story-weaving that makes this a very tense and enjoyable series. Written by Dudi Appleton and Jim Keeble and directed with panache by Benjamin Ross, the large cast includes some very fine actors - David Morrissey is at the top of the list - that includes Eddie Marsan, Sandra Oh, Lily Loveless, Neil Kelly among others. We can only hope that this 2010 series has more parts to it and that those episodes will reach our shores and TV screens. Definitely recommended for lovers of high mystery and thrillers. Grady Harp, June 21

British crime novelist Mark Billingham has created a wildly popular series (nine books so far, I believe) featuring the complicated Detective Inspector Tom Thorne. I guess it seemed inevitable, therefore, that someone would attempt to adapt them for the screen. These television interpretations of his first two novels "Sleepyhead" and "Scaredy Cat" are certainly well constructed and well acted, but they lack a bit of the surprise factor for those that follow this type of entertainment. Oh, blessed serial murderers! Where would popular entertainment be without them? Thankfully there aren't as many in real life as those that populate the pages of detective fiction as well as police procedurals in film and TV. Imagine if there were, they would now outnumber ordinary citizens by a wide margin! I know, especially with "Sleepyhead," diehard fans of the books were upset with the liberties taken with the text. I'm always somewhat pragmatic about these things. I don't require an exact replication of a book on film, what a dull world this would be with zero artistic license.

Sleepyhead (3 1/2 stars): In this chapter, we meet the enigmatic Thorne (well played by David Morrissey). A seasoned professional that oftentimes steps outside of conventional procedure, he's operates as a relative loner in the department. Thorne is haunted by a past that includes a previous run-in with a serial murderer, and so his hunches keep him attuned to unorthodox cases. A mysterious body leads Thorne to conclude another multiple murderer might be loose. The case breaks when a young woman is discovered alive, but she is trapped in a mental prison and completely unable to communicate or move.
