A bit old fashioned
I liked the series for the most part - the scenery was stunning - the actors likeable enough - the plots not to complex - and suitable for family viewing.
There were irritations - the mother and lover being somewhat OTT - the compulsory sexual tension between the two leads - will they, wont they, did they. But the most annoying was the writer's disregard for normal police procedures and the sophistication of today's viewing public. Does a coroner really accompany the police in their investigations? Do they really enter houses and hide in cupboards and overhear incriminating conversations? Do they casually search people's homes without a warrant?
Maybe in times gone by, but certainly not today I would have thought.
But hey - I'm no expert and the proof of the pudding is in the watching - and I plead guilty !!
