On the same lines, the new Minder, from the minutes I watched of it, seemed to me to be very much old Minder plots somehow transplanted into the 00s, with the odd reference to guns and knives thrown incongruously in.
It is therefore with some sadness that I must say that the first episode of Law And Order: Camden (sorry, UK, they are calling it), was deeply dreary. They are indeed using old Law And Order plots, and the same music, and Freema Agyeman is demonstrating her usual facial expressions in the usual random order. Beyond this, it reminded me more than anything of The Bill.
There were a number of slightly jarring things, rather more plea bargaining than I suspect happens in real life in the UK, but nothing actually funny in a gor blimey Miss Poppins sort of way.
