Critic Reviews for Bancroft: Season 1

I'll say it again, those Brits certainly know how to make great dramatic television.

Bancroft stumbled from the off only to regain some of its footing by the end. Enough though for a second series? I think LoD's Superintendent Ted Hastings would raise an eyebrow at that.

Oh, the plot holes, wide as fishnet stockings, the yawnworthy subplots, the joke violence.

Aside from the clichéd dialogue -- "We will find out who did this to her" -- this was truly an implausibility bonanza.

I am a fan of Sarah Parish, who took the lead role as the tough, dedicated but unhinged detective Elizabeth Bancroft. Yet even her talents couldn't make a silk purse out of what was often a sow's ear of a plot.

The first big question of fiction is, "yes, but who cares?" and Bancroft didn't come close to answering it. A shame.
