don't bother
this is NOT a new series - it is in fact edited versions of 90 minute episodes shown back in 2006. i.e. missing around half an hour. Buy the DVDs instead.

artistic licence gone mad
Disappointing waste of time to those who have read the books. I won't be watching any more.

Not the best
Being a huge fan of Ian Rankins Series of Inspector Rebus books, I was disapointed by the tv series - doesnt even come close to the books.

A Question of Blood The detective angers his superiors when he tries to connect a member of Edinburgh's criminal fraternity to the shooting of two boys and a teacher at a local college. One of the victims turns out to be the son of Rebus's cousin, giving Templar the perfect excuse to take him off the case. However, the copper is determined to trace a schoolgirl he is certain holds the key to the mystery. Ken Stott stars
