Family show very well made.

Really enjoyed watching it. It is rather difficult to create police/detective film/TV show now days. Not too many choices creators have to stand out in a huge lineup media forms on this topic.To attract potential viewers, many shows take gory oversexualized path, or gory overintellectualized one, or both. The "Blue Murder" brings common sense and respectful humor back to the screen, suspense and evolving characters also present. The series very well casted and appropriately shot, without glamorized technical cinematographical enhancements. The dialogs are nicely written, but I must say without Caroline Quentin it would be probably gray mouse show. I alway enjoy watching Caroline. She is one interesting lady, bringing very special feminine confidence to the screen without overpowering her male partners. She is probably her father's daughter!

I like British Police Series 🇬🇧
Verified purchase
I am huge fan of British TV especially Police dramas. After watching season one, it looks like this has the makings of an excellent series. My only real complaint is the music that doesn't always match the scene plus it's American Jazz. Just inappropriate. Caroline Quentin does a great job as the leading actor on show. When are we going to get our monies worth of Amazon Prime when this already has a few seasons in the can and we have to pay for part two of a two show season.

I enjoy British TV shows and got into this series. Although some of the episodes were a little improbable, when it's on, it's really good. It's a shame it was cancelled because it just started to hit it's stride.

Great series. I've enjoyed all of the episodes and the characters are interesting and fun. Typical great quality UK television. Oddly though, for some reason, none of the episodes were in order for me. I had to double check all of them before I watched.

Okay I'm a BBC fan. I like the British brand of writing mysteries and crime stories. This series is well written, acted well and has great direction. If you are looking for s good story with characters you can care about then you'll enjoy Blue Murder.

I still don't get how they came up with that name?

Fun mystery series!

Great, realistic mysteries and depictions of family life with bits of comedy. Some graphic violence, some romance but mainly a drama about teamwork, in a family and at the office, and solving murder. Very enjoyable!
