Kidnap and RansomBy a customer from derby , 15 Feb 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]I found this tv show to be very exciting, and was more like a film. Trevor Eve was very good, as Dominic King, a troubled hostage negotiator. Watched all three episodes in one go without getting restless. Maybe they will make a follow up?

Keeping the 'dead' alive!By Verandaman (5 reviews) , 10 May 2011Brilliant TV drama, but all three episodes have to be watched all at once or at least over three days or you'll get confused by the many twists and turns. As usual very good performance by Trevor (Shoelace) Eve (will he ever lose that subriquet?) and Helen Baxendale. And an amazing 'baddy' from John (Four Weddings and a Funeral) Hannah. Bet you don't guess the denoument. Good debut for Eve's new production company.
Kidnap and RansomBy a customer , 06 May 2011Fair edging towards weak. Trevor Eve was okay. but to be honest I can't really remember it that well which says it all. plot was a bit tame
when was this on tv?By a customer from uk , 27 Apr 2011starts off abit slow, but the last two episodes are very gripping. would recommend it!
its alright...By a customer from london , 20 Mar 2011It's a British TV show so don't expect it to have a budget, and the weird flashing high speed zoom edits make it feel like one of the new Steven Seagal films, maybe they thought it looked cool... it didn't. BUT, the show is pretty gripping and enjoyable, if a little bit ridiculous in places (EPISODE 3). Worth watching in one go as a film, the runtime is not 3 hours as advertised, 45mins per episode. Fine acting, lots of crying, smooth talking and angry shouting, plus some guns, iphones and John Hannah talking on a giant radio.
Life as a negotiator starkly toldBy Dungbeetle (503 reviews) from London , 09 Mar 2011A solid performance from Trevor Eve as well as great support from the cast make this a gripping production. The production team including co producer Eve spoke to several real life negotiators which shows in the down to earth feel of the piece. The parallel family problems are well integrated without being too intrusive on the main plot. At least Trevor shows he has not lost the ability to act without being cantankerous
