After my initial ravings about the award-winning Criminal Justice (series one), I think that I was setting myself up for disappointment when it came to series two.
Although a good piece of drama, I felt that it didn’t hold up against series one if I’m honest. The story line, character development and writing was much better in the first.
As is to be expected with any TV series, the ratings for the second series were slightly down on the first – the second averaged a respectable 4.4 million viewers per night against season one’s 5.2 million per night.
It was, however, really good to see Maxine in something different – hasn’t she come on a lot since her days as Twinkle on Dinnerladies?!
I rushed out to purchase season one when it came out on DVD recently, though I won’t be doing the same for series two I’m afraid (which is scheduled for 28th December 2009 incidentally).
