Right ... not to mention the actor in the role of DI Alec Hardy.
Oh, why not? Mention him! Please mention him!!!
It's true, this show keeps me at the edge of my seat. And on a second, third and fourth viewing you discover so many little details (just like in "Sherlock"), it never gets boring.
As for the two detectives, Alec and Ellie, yes, what an unusual couple, what an unusual chemistry. It's almost like an anti-chemistry which is even more of a chemistry than your usual pairings have on tv.
It's great how they seem to be on the same level in S2, in terms of emotions at least. Ellie obviously has changed, and I seem to detect a bit of Alec's crabbiness in her now. With Sandbrook his world fell apart (and I tend to believe that he hasn't always been the grumpy cat he is in S1), and now Ellie's world has fallen apart. I can't wait to see the effects this will have on her in the upcoming episodes. And on him. Her being through all of this now seems to bring out a different side of him, as well... And he really reminded me of Sherlock in that bathroom scene when he offers her a hug. "People do that." Yeah, right, Alec, but you aren't 'people'.
And I would love them to have a good cry together, but okay, that's me being a bit of a shipper, I suppose...
