Rating: 4.1/5

Karen is a refreshingly normal and charmingly unfashionable young woman. While she is not slick or a maverick cop, her quick mouth and ingenuity make her an impressive investigator. Following her promotion to Police Scotland's Historic Cases Unit, Karen is tasked with reopening the investigation into a murder that has been the subject of a provocative true crime podcast. When teenage barmaid Rosie Duff was stabbed to death in 1995, suspicion fell on the three drunken students who discovered her body. But despite police suspicion, the boys were never charged. Nearly 25 years on, DS Karen Pirie is determined to uncover what happened that fateful night. Do the men know more than they previously revealed? When Karen uncovers flaws in the initial investigation, she finds herself in conflict with the very officers who led the original hunt for the killer.

Rating: 3/5

HIM is a three-part 'domestic horror' drama commissioned by ITV from the producers of Unforgotten, Mainstreet Pictures, and written by the multi award-winning screenwriter Paula Milne. The story focuses on a 17-year-old boy, (known only in the drama as HIM) who is caught in the limbo between childhood and adulthood. But he's also trapped in a limbo between the two homes of his divorced parents, each now remarried with new families. He is the cuckoo in both their nests, a reminder of the failure of their past and a threat to their new found domestic bliss. Like any teenager, he is riding a rollercoaster of confusing emotions. Like most boys he finds it hard to process his feelings so tends to "act out". But his behaviour is also triggered by something else. He is engaged in a primal struggle to contain the terrifying secret of a supernatural power he inherited from his grandfather. A power that only his ageing grandmother understands, who urges him to use his gift only for 'good' for she knows if he doesn't it could end in tragedy. When his 17-year-old stepsister Faith moves into the family home, HIM finds himself irrevocably drawn to her. They both know their mutual attraction could rupture the family. The turmoil this causes in HIM escalates out of control and with it his supernatural power - and those closest to him are in his line of fire. This striking and original drama focuses on life's major themes: the painful breakdown of relationships, love, loss, betrayal and passion. At the heart of the story is HIM's rite of passage from boyhood to manhood as he struggles not to lose his humanity and control his supernatural power.
