So who's right about The Shadow Line? I loved its camera angles and laughed at its most serious moments. I feel a bit guilty about that, but there you go.

We're going to spend the next few weeks getting to know Rafe Spall's gums.

Apr 17, 2019 | Full Review…

Ejiofor, Eccleston, and Rea don't share a single second of screentime in these initial episodes, but it never feels as if The Shadow Line is keeping them apart for arbitrary reasons.

Apr 17, 2019 | Full Review…

At some point a television executive with an inflated salary and an addiction to phrases such as "an exciting new strand" really should have told him that the programme was far too pleased with itself.

Sep 10, 2018 | Full Review…

The Shadow Line should be applauded for trying something different. It's just a pity that so many of its characters appear the same.

May 23, 2019 | Full Review…

I know it's divided audiences, and I know some have found it slow to the point of madness, but I can't hear a word against The Shadow Line. Not a word, I tell you.

Apr 17, 2019 | Full Review…

It radiates confidence and purpose.

  • May 08, 2015
    For example this one, classic English detective kind of story, but great script writers work, you will hardly see the whole picture until the last episode, that is what make detective a perefect one, i suggest even for the ones who don't accept tv series as art at all, i hope it'll prove they wrong)
