Every so often a series sneaks under the radar, especially when it comes to online streaming services. Channel 4 is putting a lot of original series on its All4 site; some under the Walter Presents, some with under no banner at all.
Harry – from New Zealand – is one such series.
Which is a shame because it’s got a great cast and a great set-up.
Still grieving his wife’s suicide, Detective Harry Anglesea (Oscar Kightley) returns to Auckland’s Major Crime Unit after bereavement leave in his native Samoa. Although he’s eager to jump back into the job, his self-destructive behavior hints that he may not be ready. His 13-year-old daughter, Mele, is even less ready for life as normal and desperately needs her father’s attention. But Harry and his boss, DSS Jim “Stocks” Stockton (Sam Neill… yes THAT Sam Neill), soon become engrossed in a high-profile case.
Here’s a trailer:
