A co-production of Britain's BBC1 and Boston PBS outlet WGBH, Second Sight starred Clive Owen as Chief Inspector Ross Tanner and Claire Skinner as Tanner's deputy inspector, Catherine Tully. While investigating the murder of a troubled 19-year-old boy, Tanner comes to the daunting realization that he is going progressively blind. Relying on Catherine to be his "eyes," and counting upon his own inborn "second sight" as a veteran detective, Tanner feelts determined not to let his encroaching handicap impede his investigation. The drama's verisimilitude is enhanced by the presence on the set of police consultant Jon Bound and ophthalmic consultant Bob Cooling. In a reversal of the usual procedure attending Anglo-American TV productions, Second Sight aired first in America on September 30, 1999, then in the United Kingdom on January 9, 2000. After its initial brace of 90-minute episodes, the series settled into a weekly 50-minute BBC1 berth, its subsequent chapters bearing such titles as "Hide and Seek," "Kingdom of the Blind," and "Parasomnia." ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
