Interesting drama
2 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I caught this drama by chance by flicking through channels, and from then again I was gripped. When the Life and Crimes of William Palmer ended, I was impressed on the whole. One or two parts are a little slow and a couple of scenes drag a bit. But the drama is well made and acted, and is very interesting.

The production values are very elegant and meticulous. The costumes are lovely, the settings are authentic and the photography is excellent. The music is good while not overshadowing what's going on on screen too much. The Life and Crimes of William Palmer does have an interesting story, and it is compellingly told, with intelligent dialogue too. The direction is solid, and the acting is very well done. Keith Allen is outstanding in the title role, while supporting performances from Freddie Jones, Linda Bassett, Stephen Moore and Judy Cornwell are impressive.

Overall, very interesting and well done. It doesn't quite make my top 5 dramas of all time, but it is definitely worth a watch at least once. 8/10 Bethany Cox
