Case Histories | Masterpiece | PBS
A big thanks to Rachel Weeks Bright for reminding me that Jason Isaacs (a.k.a Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies) is p.i. Jackson Brodie in three Masterpiece Mystery stories.
Isaacs is so good in this role that I forgot he played Lucius Malfoy, a real stinker of a character.
Jackson Brodie is also kind of a stinker, but he’s a brilliant detective.
Kate Atkinson has written four Jackson Brodie novels; I’ve read the first, Case Histories, and enjoyed the book.
I recommend watching these three stories on PBS; they are very good.
