“An iconic part of the character, those shirts – silk, cleavage-enhancing, under a well-cut suit, and defining her as a professional woman not afraid of looking attractive – are set to see a rise in popularity ahead of tomorrow’s final episode of the five-part thriller set in Belfast.
In one episode the blouse even gets in on the action when a button comes undone during a key press conference in front of the British press. In another scene, DSI Gibson wiping blood splatters from her silky blouse is enough to throw her boss over the edge, and he explodes into lustful confessions of his feelings for her.” [x]
“DSI Gibson’s clothes, masculine in cut but with a very sensual edge, serve as a mirror for her character. She’s a woman in a man’s world — a man’s world populated by a murderer high on his own dark fantasy and by corrupt policemen high on coke and terrorism — and yet she makes no apologies for her femininity. Or her sexuality, for that matter.” [x]
