Tv Season Info
This shows all the signs of descending into utter preposterousness quite quickly but, for the moment, it's worth a look.
London was a chiaroscuro vision, Victorian terraces huddling under sky-piercing towers. This glossy apocalyptic thriller is so moreish that - to quote Bowie - my brain hurt like a warehouse.
After episode one, this looks set to be a promising hit for BBC One.
Its main weakness is Renko's partner, Charlie Hicks, played by the unwatchable Jim Sturgess. He delivers, by some miles, the worst Cockney accent on television.
Hard Sun feels like an idea that could have been compressed into a much tighter timeframe.
