This is probably the first time I've connected with a female on TV. I tend to lean toward the male characters. But Sharon Small does a fantastic job in this.
The first series was terrific. Lots of growing pains with the two leads getting to know each other. But as time went on, it seemed to fall into a rut with Havers clashing with the male police officers, and Lynley butting heads with her over procedure and her attitude.
But he trusts her, even though it takes her some time to realize it. I like how unsure she is and how much his approval means to her. There's a lot of depth in this show. I really enjoy exploring that.
