Terrific British TV Show- Identity On DVD
Out this week on DVD is Identity (Acorn Media), a terrific British police procedural about a team investigating identity theft. Keely Hawes plays DSI Martha Lawson who leads the team and takes a risk by hiring a former undercover cop, DI John Bloom (played by the dynamic Aidan Gillen). Gillen, who was in the original Queer As Folk and did a great turn on The Wire, is a fascinating actor to watch and here he plays a complicated, secretive, character. But he's still sexy as hell. Shaun Parkes plays DI Anthony Wareing, who is not charmed by Bloom abd whose ambition makes him overly suspicious as he plots to expose his partner. This unfortunately only lasted one season but all six episodes are great. Don't be surprised if this is revived on American TV.
