Edge Of Darkness

Perhaps not the most consistent mini-series ever made, Edge of Darkness nevertheless ends in a far removed place from where it starts. The fifth episode "Northmoor" is the equal of any action movie and is genuinely gripping. "Northmoor" ends with such a shock to the system, I was surprised to find that there was a sixth and final episode.

The series jumps from police story to underground political intrigue to international agendas to nervous breakdowns to an action show then to a thoughtful finale on the nature of Earth as a living organism.

Staggeringly well-written and directed, I pray for re-runs.
