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.Read more ›
The stories are well told gripping dramas. The lead detective Thorne is a great character he has more flaws than most and is his own worst enemy.
I like the TV show so much that I am now ordering the books and hope they are as good if not better than the series..
This probably deserved 5 stars but I only gave it 4 because of the foul language. Highly recommend this DVD if you love gripping detective drama.
In Sleepyhead, David Morrisey stars as Thorne as he investigates a series of brutal attacks on young women, all but two of whom have died. One of the living is confined to a hospital bed where she is paralyzed from the neck down and “locked in” – able to hear and understand everything around her but totally unable to communicate, a condition described as “like waking up in your own coffin.” The other survivor remembers nothing at all about the attack. Aided by the always-excellent Morrissey and a first-rate supporting cast, including Aidan Gillen (GoT’s Littlefinger) as Thorne’s pathologist sidekick, Natascha McElhone as a neurologist, the gorgeous Aisling Loftus (Mr. Selfridge) as her daughter, and the ever-reliable Eddie Marsan as Thorne’s bitter ex-partner, Sleepyhead is gripping from start to finish. Brian McCardie (Line of Duty) also makes the most of his brief screen time. Particular kudos are due Sara Lloyd-Gregory, who turns in an astonishing performance as the paralyzed victim, using only her eyes, her face, and her voice-over. By turns terrified, enraged, and mordantly funny, Ms. Gregory steals every scene in which she appears.
In Scaredycat, Thorne investigates a series of killings that may represent the work of two killers working in tandem.Read more ›

Not worth half what was paid for it. After, Morse, Lewis and countless others, this show was a total BORE. Spend your money on something interesting.Published on July 24, 2014 by Diane Carr
To me, murder is not a light subject matter and there should be grit and dirt and rage. Thorne gave that all to me.Published on March 9, 2014 by anonymous
