Storyline

Missing is a compelling new procedural drama series set in a busy Missing Persons Unit. The under-resourced MPU is set in Dover and is run by a charismatic woman detective: DS Mary Jane Croft, played by Pauline Quirke. Mary Jane and her story from the emotional heart of the series. MJ, as she likes to be known, harbours a dark personal secret: a missing sister of her own. This is what motivated her to join the unit and it is her journey to face up to her past that runs through every episode and provides the emotionally charged denouement of the series. Each episode tackles a very different missing persons case which MJ and her team must try to solve. They are in a race against time, since each case often involves people at risk, either from themselves or others. Written by Leopardrama

Peurile rubbish
28 March 2010 | by mark-newman-1See all my reviews

I suffered the indignity of the first episode of this latest 10 part soap opera and in doing so watched every tired cliché retread in the book. If you have run out of lines in a police drama then just insert "I'll get uniform on to it!" or " Uniform are on it, ma'am!" or better still "I thought uniform was dealing with that!" The ma'am in question doesn't get on with her boss, she doesn't know if she'll make important family gatherings because she's got a big case on, A chap is sulking 'cos his dad doesn't understand him being gay, an office romance is about as interesting as watching a fart dissipate.

Add to that the appalling script and the melodramatic nonsense of the story and you are in for a rough ride.

It's... well, just bloody awful!
