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

I've never purchased a British television show before so I was a bit apprehensive. I was afraid I wasn't going to be able to understand some of the accents, or even the terms. Overall though, I was able to understand it very well. I can only remember one time where I rewound two or three times before giving up on that one phrase because I had no idea what they said.
Clive was fabulous. He plays the tough detective (Ross Tanner) so well, but was also able to show that he was a loving father to his son. His difficulty in accepting that he had a problem was hard to watch. Claire Skinner costars as his partner (Catherine Tully). It was interesting to watch her mind work, whether it was figuring out the crime, or noticing her partner had a problem.
I thoroughly recommend this series to anyone who loves mysteries or detective stories. Or if you're a Clive Owen fan like me. Buy "Second Sight Vol. 1 & 2". There's only four episodes total, but they are each two parts due to the length. I was sorry to see them end!
NOTE TO AMAZON: Can Amazon Note in their product description when a DVD or Video (like Second Sight) offers DVS--Descriptive Video Service, an audio descripton option for viewers with visual impairment--low vision or blindness?
Same way you may list when a product offers CC --Closed Captioning for viewers with hearing impairment--deaf, hard of hearing, etc.
For those who have visual impairment, this DVD/video/TV movie offers the option of Descriptive Audio, a quiet voice that describes key visual scenes (e.g., "The man slips into the room and hides a key under the phone.") To use this, check SECOND SIGHT video menu for additional features. On regular TV, you click the MTS or SAP button on your TV remote and highlight MTS or SAP-- when a program has it, a subtle voice describes all the video action. The voice in no way interferes with the video voice--in fact, it helps the viewer.
My husband is blind, and this way we can both watch DVD. (If the program does not have it, clicking SAP or MTS will play classical music or Spanish translation).
I'm sighted, but I love Descriptive Audio for when I'm tired, too--I never miss a trick this way!
We urge ALL DVD/video makers to add descriptive video---PBS tv stations offer a great many programs with DV (e.g., Masterpiece Theatre, series, etc.)--some networks--NBC, CBS, ABC--must also, by law--look oline on tv schedule to see if DA or DV appears (where the initials CC, for "Closed Captions" for deaf viewers, normally appears).
