Midnight Man – The Complete Miniseries

He (the protagonist) has an aversion to light but that doesn’t seem to have any real effect upon him or the plot, the actual Conspiracy is fairly uninspired (although kudos to the writer for trying to make it some of the characters sympathetic towards it; he doesn’t quite pull it off but it makes a change from ‘evil people doing evil things in (evil) secrecy) and the characters are essentially two-note cutouts (mixing my metaphors) forced to run around needlessly for just over two hours in what appears to be Manchester, which must have sucked for the actors and certainly didn’t do anything for this viewer.
