Drama Thriller of the Year.
I am an addict of thrillers, mysteries, whodunits, and it's fair to say they've declined in number and quality. Then came Safe, and I have to be honest, I loved from start to finish, it was gripping, intelligent, thrilling, and at times very uncomfortable viewing. As has been mentioned, similar to Broadchurch, but slightly more of a thriller feel to it, more action then Broadchurch.
Two episodes stand out, the finale is brilliant, so action packed, so gripping. The best viewing comes from Part 4, which is intense, dramatic, and features a scene which in today's climate holds perhaps a little too much realism.
It's multi layered, the writing is superb, I'm hoping we get more of this style of show in the future. Amazing acting throughout, plaudits to Michael C. Hall, who is superb from start to finish. Amanda Abbington, Audrey Fleurot and Marc Warren also stand out.
I was a bit dubious, but do yourself a favour, watch it, it's fantastic drama. 9/10
