A promising twist on the standard crime drama is what new two part BBC drama Blood Rush promises to bring us. Starring Louise Lombard, Lyndsey Marshal and Danny Dyer and created by Waking the Dead's Barbara Machin Blood Rush follows a crime teams attempt to track down a killer.
What makes this different though is the way the drama shifts and unfolds through multiple perspectives and forwards and backwards in time. Lombard plays Kay Rousseau who is in charge of the crime team and dealing with some strong personal issues in her home life. Lyndsey Marshal plays the forensic scientist assigned to the case and Dyer is Rousseau's loyal second in command. The case becomes personal when the killer becomes obsessed with one of the team.
Blood Rush is the first UK produced drama that has tempted Louise Lombard back to the UK. It is scheduled to air this month though a date has yet to be announced. I will announce the date as soon as it is released.
