I’m enmeshed with Criminal Element again, this time with a look at the Canadian cop series Intelligence.
Mounties aside, we in the U.S. don’t usually think of Canada as the sort of place that would spawn a great TV police show. (Insert polite-criminal joke here.) Yet it did: Da Vinci’s Inquest has been called by some the best crime series ever made.
So what did Chris Haddock, the creator and co-writer of Da Vinci’s Inquest and the subsequent Da Vinci’s City Hall (yes, a sequel), do for an encore? He made another show just like them…He called it Intelligence.
