“stunningly powerful… Drama of this quality, even in the so-called ‘golden age’ of Prestige Television, is rare indeed. It helps that the scripts are in the hands of directors as talented as Jocelyn Moorhouse and Kim Mordaunt, who balance deft character work with an excellent sense of place... A simply exquisite character-driven drama.”
