Great stories and characters, can't wait till the next one, but you get such a great picture of the sixties.
Just listened to all of the available series on Audible, 1-3, back-to-back.
The story follows the Counter-Measures team solving mysterious events, similar to ‘The X-Files’. Based during the 1960’s, it has a period ‘The Avengers-esque’ soundscape to match.
The first series is OK, but a bit of a mess in places; within the behind the scenes documentary it is acknowledged they learnt what worked and what needed changing. And am happy to say that series 2+3 are both much improved.
The main issue with Counter-Measures, for me, is the delivery of one actor’s lines. So often they’re flat, lack emotion, or are poorly timed which results in them jarring with the flow of dialogue. It does improve in the latter half of series 3 so am hopefully once Audible gets Series 4 it’ll be a 5* all round review.
* Series 1 - July 2012
* Series 2 - June 2013
* Series 3 - July 2014
Not yet available on Audible:
* Series 4 - July 2015
Then it morphs into ‘The New Counter-Measures’:
* Who Killed Toby Kinsella - July 2016 (duration 2 hours)
* Series 1 - December 2016
And one last thing to say is, Hugh Ross is fantastic as Sir Toby Kinsella. He’s got a great voice.
