Did Not read the books but absolutely loved the PBS shows
4 November 2011 | by NJJoanySee all my reviews

The cast is excellent. I always liked Jason Issacs but I absolutely was moved by "Reggie". Character was played by Gwnyeth Keyworth who fitted the role to a T. She was smart, spunky, resourceful and yet so vulnerable. Her acting was remarkable. She was a delight to watch and I'd love to see more of her in the future.I was moved by her acting.

BTW, anyone know if that was her natural accent or if she was from Scotland? If not, she did a great job & I understood every word she said as opposed to the head detective's blond son with eyeglasses. Watching all 3 shows, I didn't understand one word he said!

Since I'm not familiar with the series (books), I'm guessing that the head detective and he have a history together or she would like one?
