Too many mavericks

I've just finished watching thorne: sleepyhead (complete with trendy no-caps title!).

It's another tale of a maverick police officer who is fully willing to disobey orders and in some cases the law in his investigations. In this one, he's party to an assisted suicide.

One colleague beats up a suspect.

I'm getting a bit tired of these sorts of coppers. For once, I'd like a copper who sticks to the rules. They're tempted to cross the line, but they never do. Perhaps they put their principles over their friends.

Please, I just want a change.

The novel was pretty good, the dramatisation wasn't much cop

Haven't read the novel actually...

I've seen worse; I've seen better.
