If you are looking for a decidedly different police drama, look no further than the DVD set Single-Handed. The three episodes tell the story of Jack Driscoll, who has returned to western Ireland to take over the rural police district from his father. Their style of policing is very different, although both recognize the fact that the police fill a different role in a rural setting than in an urban area. Jack still must deal with all of the vices in his small home town that were present in Dublin. The community is filled with secrets, mysteries and mistrust of authority, making it difficult for Jack to solve crimes. The acting is superb and the stories unfold in scenery that is spectacularly beautiful, in stark contrast with the dark stories being told. This is an excellent series!
