If you are a US viewer you'll certainly need the subtitles turned on although I recommend you find something else to watch. I turned off after around 30 minutes because of the mumbling dialogue which has attracted thousands of complaints to the BBC.
Sean Harris is utterly terrible in this role as he was in the channel four travesty Southcliffe.
How the director/producers failed to notice the nonsensical dialogue is beyond me.
Do yourselves a favour and buy the (very excellent) book and give this utterly terrible adaptation a wide berth.
