To be fair, this is not entirely inaccurate. Some may even find it date, instead I find it a wonderful dramatisation in a period of time during which actions were taken, from which the repercussions are still being felt.Of course, it is not perfect - Fusion feels rushed, odd details like Craven's interrogation techniques are poorly developed and Jedburgh's activities outside of London are glossed over.Overall, however, I really cannot recommend Edge Of Darkness highly enough, not only for the quality of the acting, writing, direction and production but for the way in which British television, which is still great, can produce a drama serial with so much warmth, intelligence, depth and interest that it still stands up almost twenty years on.As with the original broadcast of the series and this DVD, I take this opportunity to point out that the GAIA Organisation group as described here is entirely fictional and has no connection with the Gaia Movement or the publishers of Gaia Books.

My assumption in writing this review is that many people would have suffered the same frustrations and will be reading this to remind themselves of the plots and conspiracies within Edge Of Darkness.Therefore, I make no apologies for including any spoilers but please, if you do not want to know the plot of Edge Of Darkness, either because you wish to revisit it or watch it anew without remembering or knowing much of the story in advance, avoid the next six sections and skip directly to the.The series opens with Craven investigating corruption and election fixing in a trade union, paying particular attention to the re-election of the union leader, James Godbolt (Jack Watson). Immediately after, Craven decides to visit Pendleton who introduces him to Henry Harcourt (Ian McNeice), also attached to the Prime Minister's office but who has been drafted in from the City to investigate procedural and legal irregularities at the Northmoor nuclear facility.Harcourt and Pendleton, working from here on in as a team, inform Craven of Emma's role in a break-in at Northmoor and that she had recently been exposed to large doses of radiation.

Votes: 3,449 As mentioned, the scenes in Craven's house following Emma's death are particularly well executed. From there the story spirals into a gripping eco-thriller of political conspiracy, secret service machinations and even shady medieval societies. Craven escapes from the police just as they become aware of his presence within the building and mount a raid, escaping into the Barbican to meet Clemmy.Before Craven leaves for Northmoor, however, he is again asked to attend the parliamentary enquiry where he meets Godbolt once again, whose full participation in the GAIA Organisation's and IIF's activities at Northmoor become clear.With Godbolt's assistance and following the same path the GAIA Organisation took into the facility, Craven and Jedburgh enter Northmoor but are entirely unaware that Bennett and Grogan have already arranged for an armed security team to be made available.After Godbolt leaves, Craven and Jedburgh make their way to a hot cell where they discover a store of plutonium, the presence of which IIF had always denied.

Much of this is beyond mere nostalgia - I challenge anyone to find someone who speaks so highly of 'Dear Heart' - as there does seem to be a popular view that Edge Of Darkness did soar to levels that television rarely tries to; that it was an example of a type of television that the British really were exceptional at, above all the hours of dreadful television shows stillborn every year since 1985.If Edge Of Darkness does not stand alone in British television history, it has few acquaintances.Be warned about this section, as what follows is a detailed breakdown of each episode, each section of which contains major spoilers, including all of the important developments within the plot.My reason for doing this is that, in researching this review and for long periods before purchasing this DVD, I found so little information on Edge Of Darkness that I became frustrated that such a wonderful television series had so little information online, particularly in the breakdown of the story.
