Fans of CSI will be drawn to Murder Investigation Team, which authentically profiles the gritty realities faced by the Special Crimes Unit of London’s Metropolitan Police.
From the creators of The Bill, this critically acclaimed police thriller follows an intense team of investigators led by DC Rosie MacManus (Lindsey Coulson, EastEnders) and DS Trevor Hands (Michael McKell, Emmerdale Farm). The detectives rely on both new technology and old-fashioned instinct to find those responsible for gruesome crimes.
Love triangles, family estrangements, greed, and lies lead to a series of wrong turns and dead ends, building the pressure to solve cases while the evidence is still fresh—and, sometimes, before the killer can strike again. Along the way, the investigators struggle to walk the line between professional loyalties and personal interests. Claire Higgins (Hellraiser), Kenneth Cranham (Rome), and Anthony Stewart Head (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) guest star in these final episodes.

Bonus material confirms the series was shot with High-Def cameras and it matches the technology driven team assigned grisly crimes. Guest stars are included as both good and bad guys/girls. There is occasional sharp wit, but mostly sharper evidence considerations, at least with personal issues are not clouding the moment. That human side of MIT cops is a stronger focus, over Series 1. Office relationships and personal problems form side-plots that carry over from one episode to another. But each episode has its primary brutal death (graphic images) to solve.
Series 2 has four 70-minute episodes...a few guest stars are listed, only some.

The scripts were not well written and very boring. You felt like the writers were plucking ideals from the newsprint and trying to write a script around it. This worked really well for Law And Order because the writing was excellent. In this situation the scripts were uninteresting and did not come together. None of the main characters grabbed your attention. In recent years the quality of the British Detective Series has declined. Unfortunately the Brits have copied more and more the American Style Detective Series format.

Maybe not my favorite, but I really did like the characters, especially the actress who played Eva Sharpe. Very plausible, the writing was at least believable.Published 11 months ago by homeagain5000
