A gentle X-files meets Hamish Macbeth type show

Glad I ignored the negative reviews.... So yes perhaps it is a little childish and that acting is not the greatest (some of the supporting cast may have been rather overstretched in trying to act the parts of characters with a lot to hide) but it's a good story with interesting and likeable varied characters and an ongoing mystery about their pasts which are revealed as the episodes progress. I've watched up to episode 12, and I am looking forward to seeing what happens next. The dialogue contains a lot of humour, the episode plots are not predictable (eg you can play the game of guessing who is responsible for the supernatural activity and be wrong often enough to make it interesting), the series plot isn't predictable and the relationships between the characters reflect the awkwardness and complexities of human relationships rather more realistically than the average show. I also appreciate the 12 certificate - I wish there were more DVDs that could tell a good story without turning my stomach. There are some (fairly brief) shocking/gross scenes - it is X-files-ish - but it's mild. One I could recommend to my mum - and probably will.
