On an impulse i downloaded all 8 episodes, not knowing what to expect.
I was captivated from the start. Every episode making me want to watch more!
This is not for people who have a low attention span, it requires a thirst for story-telling and a heart that knows what it is to be human. We are all fragile.
For everyone who posseses these qualities, the reward is immense.
Good scripting, ruthless characters, fragile characters, parallels with current political shenanigans, joy, pain, excitement etc.
Most of all, we have gold standard acting from the whole cast.
This is drama at its best.
Billy Howle is fantastic - you'll be heartbroken one moment, terrified the next!
Everyone else is also brilliant - no-one let's you down.
Like others, I am at a loss to understand why some reviews gave this a hard time. Like I said - low attention span.
If you miss it - its your misfortune.
I wish all TV drama was this good.
