Movie Reviews

Simply Love It!
Becky | Lincoln, NE | 03/28/2000

"I first "discovered" the Touching Evil series when I was flipping through the channels and landed on PBS Mysteries! I've always enjoyed mysteries, especially British-made mysteries, so I decided to watch it. It is one of the most riveting mystery shows I have ever seen. The characters are not the typical mystery dectectives who typically seem to magically know what happened at the end of the show. You have to struggle to find the answers right along with the characters, and they don't always do the right thing. I have bought both Touching Evil 1 and Touching Evil 2, and I'm anxiously awaiting Touching Evil 3 which will be on PBS sometime later this year."
Superb Mystery

"Hollywood should go after Robson Greene. He is a star in the truest sense. I have seen several of his British movies and he has an on-screen presence that should be nurtured for American audiences. The Touching Evil series is as good as it gets in mystery series. The emotions are enhanced by great acting and thought provoking story lines. I can only hope the BBC keeps sending them our way."
Wonderful, tense

"It isn't often in the US that we get the kind of quality that is usual on the BBC, ITV or other independent productions. The British seem to care more about their productions than we do.

I have all 3 seasons of TE. Each episode makes me wonder how writers could come up with such orignial scripts. The scripts are personal, as though the writers asked themselves what they would do if they were in the same position.

Robson Green is fantastic as the tortured Dave Creegan. He is in a difficult position. After being shot in the head and chest he has to take medical leave, which includs psychiatric leave. It distroys his family. Now his ex-wife is living with a man who has no problem with Dave coming or going in the house or sleeping on the couch. Dave's "X" gets pregnant and doesn't want the child. It's obvious, she wishes it were Dave's not Barry's. Oddly enough it brings the two men closer.

This is a very emotinal show as the watcher wonders how Creegan will deal with the next case and when will Creegan and Taylor fall in love, but they never do. It's a friendship. Creegan is still in love with his "X".

It's very difficult to explain the feeling this show brings to the viewer. When I first started watching the series, I was numb by the guality of the programming and the abilities of the actors.

Green as Creegan brings a wonderful presence to the character. Creegan stands out as emotional, volitile and yet shy man. Nicole Walker as his partner Susan Taylor, is awed and yet scared by Creegan's edgy personality. Michael Feast as ACC Enwright works hard to rein in Creegan's emotionality and sometimes fails. The rest of the cast, up until Series 3, just follow in Green's and Creegan's footsteps.

This review was supposed to be about Series 2, but all 3 of the of the series hold their "own". I couldn't tell you which I prefered, but I do recommend all of them.

"Im British, so I saw Touching Evil way before the US but though I cant seem to find series 2 or 3 on video, I remember quite clearly Touching Evil 2 was the most thrilling, chilling and involved in the characters as any of the series before or after. The first series dealt mostly with Robson Green, but the second delved into Walker and Dingwall's characters and their relatioships with each other, which became really interesting. The end of the second and thrid videos will blow you away!"
