Most Enjoyable once you get into it
1 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

The first episode does start out rather slow and it has a lighthearted feel to it. Seeing Toby Jones in this type of role for the first time takes a bit of time to get use to ,but He does come through and gives a great performance.

A real stand out performance from Vicky McClure and the rest of the cast give a good performance too. By episode 2 it starts to get dark and much more enjoyable to watch.

Episode 3 is really good ,it takes some really dark twists and holds your interest .

The music really adds to the feel of it all, as does the great location scenes. I thought it well acted and produced, it leaves you wanting more.
