Influences from TV: Case Histories

Everything that has influenced my webcomic Detective Fausto

I describe this BBC show as depressive and a series of random crimes.  But that doesn’t mean it’s a bad show, it makes an excellent show

Based on the novels by Kate Atkinson “Case Histories” has as protagonist Jackson Brodie an ex military ex cop turn in Private Investigator.
Haunted by the murder of his sister when he was a young boy, Jackson always tries to help everybody, which brings him more trouble with the police and his ex partner Louise Munroe
Murder young women, abused girls and violence in general surrounded Jackson, as he tries to do the right thing. But Jackson isn’t perfect his a little self destructive and emotional disattached to everybody except his daughter, who is moving to New Zealand.
6 episodes carefully produced with great performances and an amazing soundtrack (only female singers) that show us that solving crimes is heavy on a man soul, but there is always hope.
