  • Dear Inspector Lynley, please retire!

    I've really tried to like Inspector Lynley but it's become so repetitive now that it's even more boring than it was when it first started. Nathaniel Parker couldn't act his way out of a paper bag and his lack of chemistry with Sharon Small (the worst cockney accent since Dick Van Dyke) makes the whole "will they, won't they?" unresolved sexual tension laughable. And how many times can Lynley investigate a murder that’s linked to a friend, colleague, acquaintance or relative? Does anyone out there really believe that police officers are allowed to do that? Totally rubbish. The only positive thing I have to say is that this dim-witted series is a fair reflection of Elizabeth George’s appalling books – an American view of English life that has no grounding in reality. Time to retire the dear old Inspector to the House of Lords where he can snooze away in peace.
