ASHES TO ASHES
ABC 1, 8.35pm
★★★ This diverting but essentially daft series lumbers towards some sort of denouement which may involve convincing the lovely Alex Drake, the time-warped rozzer who looks like no rozzer you or I have ever met, that the coarse Gene Hunt has no case to answer. But I may be wrong, and does it matter, really? At times, the series feels like an indulgence created for the amusement of bored scriptwriters.
