News & Interviews for C.B. Strike: The Cuckoo's Calling
It makes for some steady, dependable viewing, but it always feels like there's more for these two to explore.
How sweet it is to see a straight-ahead crime solving series starring a detective with no built-in superpowers, physical or otherwise.
As late summer fare goes -- maybe that should read "fayre" in the circumstances -- The Cuckoo's Calling is perfectly enjoyable.
As with the book, I'm not sure I would have been so drawn to it if it hadn't been for Rowling's name. But such is the wonder of branding. Now that I'm here I can see myself sticking around for the long term.
Stream it. C.B. Strike goes down easy, but it's got enough twists and turns that you can't just watch it while folding laundry. And that seems to be a good sweet spot for a detective show.
