In this latest Kate Atkinson adaptation, a half-naked, tattooed and shockingly hirsute Keith Allen plays a washed-up, garrulous, terrible comedian with a show at the Edinburgh festival who’s lodging with his brother, an author whose life is turned horribly upside down when he intervenes to stop a road-rage attack. But what the hell happened?

After last week’s polished opening something’s gone badly wrong; the delicacies of Atkinson’s plotting and storytelling (it’s based on her book One Good Turn) don’t translate to the screen and are left looking leaden and exposed. But never mind, Jason Isaacs as private eye Jackson Brodie removes his shirt a couple of times, so all is not lost.


Part one of two. Jackson searches for the killer of a drowned girl whose body he found while out running, and also tries to help a novelist who became involved in a road-rage incident. However, a discovery at the hospital leaves the investigator wondering whether the seemingly unrelated incidents might be linked - but he also finds himself distracted by his daughter's imminent move to New Zealand. Crime drama, starring Jason Isaacs, with Keith Allen.
