Knock-Out for Emily Watson As Never Equalled in Television History
28 October 2013 | by (London) – See all my reviews

In this last episode of this political drama, Emily Watson delivers an especially awe inspiring, overwhelmingly stunning performance that rivals anything she has ever done on screen, stage, or television. This is simply unforgettable in its power, poignancy, and sheer magnificence. Each episode has revealed another layer to the character Watson so elegantly portrayed but besides a well written script, it is Watson herself who makes for a multi-dimensional human being of calculating coldness, heart-wrenching warmth, alternating beauty and naked ambition in all its ugliness, that is so completely amazing that no other actor has ever achieved such sublime perfection. This is acting of power, such tremendous perfection that when it is time for the BAFTA's there is no doubt whatsoever who will be awarded the coveted honor. If that is not the case, there is no justice or honor in the profession any longer and the British awards have gone the way of the Academy Awards, which Watson has outrageously never won due to political correctness, popularity contest, box office nonsense. At any rate, award yourself the honor of seeing this series and paying especially close attention to the unprecedented accomplishment of the most gifted actor of our time, Ms. Emily Watson.
