Plot overview taken from Wikipedia, since there's no real description for people to go on.

A new academic year begins at the ancient and prestigious Trinity College, Bridgeford University, and among the new students is Charlotte Arc (Antonia Bernath), whose father Richard Arc (Nick Sidi) was formerly a student and then professor at the college. Richard left the institution suddenly some years earlier and had never explained why, and two weeks before Charlotte is due to join the college, he is found dead in mysterious circumstances. Convinced that her father's death is in some way linked to the college, Charlotte enrols determined to try and uncover the truth.

As Charlotte and her fellow students settle in, they begin to realise that all is not what it seems at Trinity. Beneath the glossy, glamorous veneer lurks a much darker world, governed by strict codes of conduct and secret societies, most notably the mysterious Dandelion Club whose members are among the college's wealthiest and most privileged students who are used to getting their own way.
A progressive new Warden of the college, Dr Angela Donne (Claire Skinner), is trying to modernise the institution. But she has a fight on her hands from those determined to preserve the old order, including the arrogant and sinister Dean, Dr Edmund Maltravers (Charles Dance), and the spoiled and manipulative President of the the Dandelion Club, Dorian Gaudain (Christian Cooke), backed by his father, the interfering Lord Ravensby (Anthony Calf).

Once again, the English have shown us what REAL entertainment is all about. They have put out yet another incredibly written, fast-paced really-makes-you-think-to-try-and-keep-up-with-the-pace-and-plot of a series! "Trinity", along with "Being Human", "Sherlock", "The Murder Room", "Agatha Christie's Marple", and "New Tricks", which is another groundbreaker in quality of writing & tight plots, & one could even hark back to the truly greatly entertaining "Jonathan Creek" mystery series. Unfortunately however, I cannot find where "Trinity" was picked up after Season 1. What a shame!! A great show!!

Why oh Why do they always cancel the good ones! Yes, there was some over the top campy stuff in this, but that made the mystery all the more better. It was sexy, funny, and intriguing. I'm so in love with British TV that I should probably go visit sometime, but I would have to find time to learn the language. ;-)

Murder mystery/mad scientist/freshman sexcapades/stoners/bigotry/international intrigue. Intentionally silly plot. Campy and slightly burdened by so much hamming it up, but still enjoyable. Charles Dance, brilliant as ever, holds it together.

Hmmmm... Difficult to review. The fact that this 2008 series was on ITV2 and wasn't renewed sort of says it all. It's silly and full of stereotypes; but I watched all 8 episodes (about 6 hours) and laughed - guess that's called entertainment. Prudes beware: the advertising says 'recreational sex, recreational drugs and random murder;' there's swearing, full frontal male nudity and some gory operating room scenes. But, I didn't find it as offensive as many modern programs that supposedly reflect real-life. I don't regret buying it and may well recommend it to others who would appreciate the Americans were behind it all.

Whether or not you like this depends a lot on how you choose to watch it. Its like this show was trying to be too many things at the same time. Take an academic version of a rollicking sex comedy, add a serious representation of the class system, add another plot point aiming at suspense with a secret cabal setting into motion some undefined world agenda, and finally mix in another plot point involving two total misfits who are SO stoned and just plain DUMB that you begin to wonder how we are supposed to believe they were ever admitted to this prestigious college to begin with (its kind of like Harold and Kumar go to Oxford). Mix all that together and you have this series.

The sets and the cast are both beautiful to look at and there are moments of real fun----and certainly a lot of sex! But, the acting is hit and miss, the dialogue is silly, and the mix of plots is confusing at first until you just stop caring about it. If you like a visually pleasing sex comedy, then this is a fun ride. If you have ANY expectation of anything making sense you are in for a frustrating experience.

Very goofy and off-beat little series - the kids loved it. More Comedy than Drama in my opinion - pity it wasn't renewed.
