Republic of Doyle (2010)

;Republic of Doyle; Republic of Doyle is an almost quintessentially Canadian crime series. Set in St. John`s, Newfoundland it pretends to grander things but with a brash freshness that works well on the small screen. The series has its serious moments but never takes itself seriously. How Canadian is that? It`s fully laced with quirky people, lots of humour and terrific locations. If it reminds you a bit of the Rockford Files, that`s okay. The retro vibe is anchored in the lead character`s car, and some of the best chase scenes ever shot in Canada. As the official website claims, this series is an “exciting new take on the hero P.I. character,” and that hero is series creator, actor Allan Hawco in the lead role of Jake Doyle. Doyle is supported by his dad in the family business, an ex-cop with the wonderful name of Malachy Doyle, played by Irish actor Sean McGinley.
