Saw the title and rightly guessed you , @Blondeshavemorefun was the OP.
Once again I won't get to see it as it goes out on ITV and for some reason Virgin TV in Ireland doesn't give us ITV but will probably have the show on 6 weeks later than ITV 🙄

Ooh I’ve seen two of these on Britbox, really enjoyed them.

This isn’t a spoiler, but I found it quite funny that everyone has very very French names, all pronounced in a very very French way, but every other word is English. It works, just a bit funny when an obvious Mancunian goes full on with the French pronunciation.

The ultra English accents are hysterical. Interspersed with French sounding names

Gave up after 20mins. Really slow. Was hoping for Death in Paradise or the Mallorca Files but in France

We tried it as we love Roger Allum but it just felt so odd and fake, couldn't get on with it at all.

Shame as he's usually only ever in good things!

I don’t understand why all names are French yet they all speak in normal English accents?! Very annoying!

Not sure, the lines especially roger allams are not natural and why would two very senior people be doing the running around

It's a bit rubbish. I don't really like gentle murder type stuff. I love roger allam. He's capable of so much more.

At least we didn't spend a Britbox subscription in order to watch this earlier this year (as my parents did)!
