In Review: Lucky Man – Episode 3

Harry is drawn into the case of a robbery at Hatton Garden as he starts to realise that his good luck comes at a price.

Synopsis: Harry is drawn into the case of a robbery at Hatton Garden as he starts to realise that his good luck comes at a price.

Review: The story continues a matter of hours from where things left off last week and DI Chohan is benched in favour of DI Orwell who is given charge of Harry.

The investigation into a series of diamond thefts in the Jewish community of London winds up revealing a little more of the overall story arc of this show.

Harry pretty much has his back up against the wall within his own department, but is still able to solve the diamond crime, but learns that Eve who gave him the bracelet may not be as above board as she is claiming to be.

Again we had a pretty good episode in this, but it was a little to bogged down with the investigation of the crime of the week, but thankfully the crime this week did reveal some connection to the overall story.

While investigating the casino DI Chohan who is on leave may have uncovered something, which may have Harry questioning the legitimacy of the Bracelet, which was a nice touch, but given that pretty much every attempt to destroy it or get it off Harry’s wrist has failed. I’m writing it off as an obvious red herring to play with audience expectations.

Darren Boyd puts in a pretty decent performance as DI Orwell and offers a more taut partnership with Harry than we have seen in previous episodes.
