Summary

First episode of the crime drama following high-flying solicitor Jane Kennedy as she takes over the job of coroner in the English coastal town she escaped from as a teenager. A teenager is found dead at the foot of a tower and DS Davey Higgins believes it was a suicide, but Jane thinks there is more to the case than meets the eye. Starring Claire Goose and Matt Bardock.

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Lovely sun-kissed West Country scenery and a professional who, for personal reasons, returns to work in the seaside town of their childhood: it could be Doc Martin. But although it has a light touch, this daily drama isn’t as obviously comedic.

Claire Goose plays coroner Jane Kennedy, while Matt Bardock is her childhood sweetheart DS Davey Higgins. Together – between slightly awkward moments – they investigate local deaths, starting with the body of a 17-year-old lad that’s found at the base of a lighthouse. Leaving aside the criticism that coroners don’t get this involved with police work, it’s nicely made and not too taxing or gruesome – a pleasant addition to daytime.
