S. ButlerReviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 April 2019
5.0 out of 5 stars
Superb
Not an "easy" watch, in the very best possible sense. Each and every episode brings a thought provoking story line and distinct moral dilemma, delivered by an absolutely incredible cast. Highly recommended.

Brit drama at its best
These are classic McGovern dramas, with rounded characters and realistic storylines. A real find..

Really Classic and Intense Portrayals
Using everyday poor choices we make and turning them into high octane drama takes incredible skill which was highly delivered. Ignore previous comment about Episode 6 from some Ree, it was well done. No wonder most critics are wrong!!

Addictive - Binge-Watched every episode
I'm very fussy about what movies / series I will watch. I was addicted from the first episode.
Each episode is really interesting and well acted. Highly recommended !
