An Inspector Calls and Alfred Hitchcock are evoked in the BBC's gripping crime drama about a gruesome house share. When a young couple move into their new flat they soon unearth the body of a woman, who hasn't been seen for two years, in the attic. Their housemates – who include a sneering teacher (David Bamber) and his damaged former pupil, a dysfunctional lesbian couple and a former alcoholic (Steven Mackintosh) – are all suspects. David Threlfall excels as the retired detective who can't let this case go, and, up until the bonkers and gothic last 10 minutes, this is beautifully paced TV. »
