Storyline

Hard-up former military man Furneaux is working on a book about his experiences as a prisoner in the Korean war, when his young ghost writer is killed and the manuscript stolen, after which Furneaux gets a threatening call not to publish the book. After he has been framed for a hit-and-run it becomes clear that his book exposes a recently-deceased supposed war hero who was, in fact, a murderer, and that the man's son and his regiment will stop at nothing to prevent publication, including drafting in an assassin.

Writer gets killed-good mystery but violent
27 July 2013 | by ctyankee1See all my reviews

Bergerac is a fairly good series. This is about a former soldier Major Furneaux who is writing a book. He has video and Mr Morton another writer is helping him with story.

Mr Morton gets attacked and his notes are stolen. The Major gets a warning that the book will not be published.

The book is about a soldiers that go into a town and are ordered to kill many civilians. They won't do it but the leader does and kills many innocent people.

This is very violent even parts of the movie that is shown in the village where this happened.

People are sent to Jersey the town where Bergerac/John Nettles of Midsomer Murder is a cop. He is overseeing this investigation.

The storyline is good but the the fact that only the criminals have guns and not the police makes no sense.

Bergerac goes after one of the most dangerous men who has a gun. He tackles him and subdues him and the man is not cuffed but walks very calmly to the police car. A killer is not calm.

This is like the George Gently and other British series where killers have guns and use them but not cops.

When police do have guns they are told not to shoot. It also shows that detectives and non-uniformed police don't have a gun. This makes no sense.
