If you are looking for a different spin on CSI material...this is one of them. Well written, convoluted crimes, creative filming. Definitely worth the watch if you are a fan of the genre. Noticed several nods to Twin Peaks throughout the episodes as well...some more or less obvious than others. There must be a fan in the production team.
There are ten 70 minute episodes here. After viewing them, it seems silly that they chose to cancel it...still, was curious enough about this one to view it. Wouldn't want to keep this in my collection though. Ah's an old story which has happened to many a good show.
Going to step up on my soapbox for a second...Personally, I grew sick of good shows being cancelled a few years back. So I cast my ballot and stopped watching TV...and wasting my time with their vicissitudes and sponsors. Now I watch DVDs on my weekly viewing schedule...usually shows which I know have run their arcs through several seasons to a satisfying conclusion. Really, who wants a DVD collection full of loose ends, eh? Amazon is chock full of depressed reviews from folks whose favorite show was cancelled and the production team and writers were not given enough notice to conclude it properly. Usually only takes a few more episodes to do that, right? (For example...see Jericho.) Wonder if the networks have done any research to determine how much DVD sales are increased by simply giving a series a proper ending before cancelling it? Stop me now...I'm starting to talk sense...ugh.

Most enjoyable

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I watched all the episodes on BBC America, and was disappointed that it abruptly went off the air. Very different type of murder mystery. You will need to pay close attention so you don't miss out on any of the clues. I am glad that I can at least watch the shows again on DVD. I also found that acting to be superb!"
Murder City is Great

"I highly recommend this set too! Like the other reviewers, I feel this series was taken off BBC too quickly. I thought the writing was great and Amanda Donohoe and Kris Marshall were perfect together."

"This series, I found to be the most interesting since "Boomtown" was taken off the air. (Also prematurely). NBC and BBC seem to have that much in common. The team on "Murder City"is very likable and worked well together w/o yelling at one another as they solved the cases. It is just too bad we did not get more episodes of this wonderful series. I highly recommend this set."
