The subtle trick Showtime's "Penny Dreadful is that it is far less about the blood, gore and the specter of gruesome death than the sharp pain and exhilarating pleasure of living, and the terror of feeling alone even in close company. Read our review in the May Picks section.
Its not been shown for years, even with satellite TV's penchant for repeats, the Canterbury tales reset as a collection of misfits head for Wembley & the rugby league cup final. The years have dimmed my memory but I thoroughly enjoyed this series, probably Bill Maynard's most watchable work. Yet another gem by Alan Plater.
