Released in 1998, this has some very good ideas and is particularly prescient about the dangers of social media. Unfortunately however, I found the tone of the piece to be too light. The admittedly lo-tech (by today's standards) stalking software is agreeably creepy, but too much of the show is played for laughs and the amiably gormless Brighton police force wouldn't be out of place in a 1920s defective story. A young Paul Bettany shows star quality, though of the rest of the cast only Kathy Brolly as Charlie, the enigmatic murder victim, is in the same league; the male lead, Tam Williams, was apparently too insipid to even warrant a credit on the packaging of the DVD copy I watched.
