When I watched Gallowglass, I came away thinking, how bonkers it is, that Ruth Rendell's work isn't focused on more so, there are plenty of her titles that are just crying out to be adapted.
It's deep, that's for sure, not a show to put on for a casual evening's viewing, you need to fully engage, concentrate on events. The story is complex, the characters even more so, you could argue it takes time for events to get into motion, but it's worth sticking with, you'll find yourself rewarded for patience.
The acting is superb, and it's the Welsh duo of Michael Sheen and Paul Rhys that particularly stand out, Sheen is fantastic as the subservient Joe, Rhys arguably steals the show as the handsome, dangerous Sandor. There are some great scenes with Nerys Hughes.
Great production values, it's British drama at its very best. 9/10
