Based on the British crime drama of the same name, 'Touching Evil' centres around David Creegan, a detective returning to work after surviving a near-fatal gunshot wound to the head. Creegan is a man on the edge with a flair for understanding the criminal mind but also has a tendency to bend the rules when it suits him. When he is assigned to the Organized and Serial Crime Unit of the FBI, he is partnered with no-nonsense Susan Branca, who is determined to do things by the book. Although the two clash on many occasions, they are determined to work together to bring down the psychopaths who torment the streets of their city. Written by Melissa J

A pleasure to have characters who could be real. Jeff Donavan seems a natural subject to play a troubled investigator who is reminded of who he was and what he now is as the result of his near death mishap. Miss Farmiga makes the perfect partner for her quirky other half. This may have been a clone of the British network program but maybe an American will be a success. We hope as time goes by to see the inner layers of investigators and how they tick while investigating their next case. Hope this program remains a keeper. With TV being inundated with drab reality shows and mindless sitcoms this show is a welcome change. CDB
