Media Reviews

Northern Rescue could be a coherent discussion of grief work. The dispute over Sarah's things - keep everything or donate? - becomes a first major ordeal that sensitively illustrates how difficult it is to say goodbye to a loved one.

Media Reviews

Northern Rescue is a familiar-feeling procedural show with a side serving of family drama. Despite being a very well-trodden path Northern Rescue ends up being quite entertaining, and even quite fun in places. If you can get beyond the cliches then you might actually enjoy it.
