A few days later, I saw the same person on a pedestrian walkway in Austin; I think I glared. Apparently, Robson Green is so good that he appears to be a crazy Englishman even all by himself in the middle of Texas. At the time, I had no idea who he was.
If you're a Wire in the Blood Fan, you'll know why to watch this. If you're not a fan, you should be. However, if you're even a Texas fan, it's really pretty fun to play, "Spot the location" with this. That I could count, they used the Smitty's Barbecue side of the old Caldwell County courthouse for the opening shots; a motel in Elgin; part of the Houston ship channel for a shot over a bayou on the edge of a refinery; the first floor of the Giddings Courthouse for a police station; the arches of a building in Comal County or San Antonio; multiple floors of the old Caldwell Courthouse; a metal bridge on Eskew in Bastrop that is usually closed to cars; a long, contemplative sweep of the fields next to 71 as you drive to Bastrop from South Austin; the view from the cupola in the State Capitol; Congress Avenue circa 2007, before all the condos; even the Travis County jail, before the expansion.
This is a really incredible compendium of South and Southeast Texas film locations. If you live here, watch it for that alone. (And I'm sorry for glaring.)
I thought it might be interesting to see Dr. Hill in a new location but Texas was not the right place. The twangy music seemed to cheapen the production values. This movie seemed like a low-budget film. I wondered if it aired on TV in the UK. I don't think this movie would hook you on the WIRE IN THE BLOOD series if you have never heard of Dr. Tony Hill. Stick with the TV episodes. Robson Green is a fine actor and the series regulars are a great team of actors. If you like a psychological police drama, you won't be disappointed. The Bradfield Police Department needs you, Dr. Tony Hill. Don't leave town again.
