A thrilling comparison

Denmark gives us Forbrydelsen (The Killing), and Britain produces Sherlock, the final episode of which was inflicted upon viewers last night.

And to think that England once ruled the waves.

Good actors (Benedict Cumberbatch – Cabin Pressure; Martin Freeman – Micro Men), crap writing that would do a disservice even to Dr Who, appalling production, hyped to the heavens. The result? An instant hit, adored by critics throughout medialand.

British television audiences get what they deserve. I should have heeded Mick Hartley’s warnings.
