ITV’s Collision

Collision, ITV’s five-part police drama aired this week with the final episode airing tonight at 9pm GMT.

I was looking forward to the show, but have to say I found it disappointing as Collision struggles with its own identity.  Although beautifully edited, produced and directed, it is a show intent on filling five hours by whatever means.  What should be a police drama of what happens at the scene of a collision disintegrates into a soap-styled show.  Every character hides dark secrets, be it love affairs, business or illegal immigrants. 

It should be good, but alas as the production company was given five one-hour slots it was intent on filling them.  In the end, the programme didn’t know what it wanted to be.
