It premieres Sunday night on BBCAmerica!
Will you be watching?
View the longer trailer here. Looks like things could get pretty dark and nasty, which I confess puts me off just a little*, but I’m really looking forward to seeing how they handle 1860s forensics.
*Not sure why I’m put off. I loved the dark and nasty of THE WIRE. Why should I expect a 19th century crime show to be prim and proper? Why should I be bothered by a detective who isn’t exactly cerebral and celibate? This isn’t Sherlock Holmes. In fact, it looks a heck of a lot more like Gangs of New York. Maybe that’s what’s bothering me?
