From I LOVE TV : EDGE OF DARKNESS
Edge of Darkness delivers in spades. It's a British drama delivering action without needing Hollywood's cliché bible. It even manages to fit in symbolism and a conspiracy.
The moment that most lingers in the mind is the sequence where Baker and Peck find a bomb shelter buried deep in nuclear plant. Fine wine, the best books, and, of course, a classic motor car. The two settle down for a gourment dinner.
It's hypnotic enough for its oddity alone, but what is even more striking is that this relaxation occurs in the middle of a fraught chase sequence. Character development amid the action? Doesn't happen these days.
