News & Interviews for C.B. Strike: The Cuckoo's Calling
How sweet it is to see a straight-ahead crime solving series starring a detective with no built-in superpowers, physical or otherwise.
It makes for some steady, dependable viewing, but it always feels like there's more for these two to explore.
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.
It has style and good actors. These days on television much depends on the eye of the beholder, this is ever so true with the plot of this series.
