Review by:
David Crawford

Things step up a gear tonight as Michael Britten makes the conscious decision to switch realities. He’s desperate as his son Rex has been kidnapped by an escaped prisoner whom Britten arrested.

To solve the case, he hops to the other reality where the con is still alive and in prison. As coincidences compete with conspiracies for your attention the more fanciful aspects are anchored by the deadweight of the Brittens’ grief and the chiseled hunk of doleful expressions that is the brilliant Jason Isaacs.

About this programme

3/13. Rex is abducted by an escaped convict, and Britten's worries mount when he realises the kidnapper is John Cooper, a man he helped send to jail a decade earlier. However, as he delves deeper into the case, he discovers Cooper might be motivated by something other than revenge - but just when Britten is on the verge of making a breakthrough, tragedy strikes. Crime drama, starring Jason Isaacs, with William Russ (Boy Meets World).
