I missed this one because I was out on the Thursday night, but I caught
it on BBC's iplayer - and I'm glad I did. Another fantastic performance
from Martin Shaw and another thoroughly believable character to add to
his repertoire. Father Jacob is played with all the intensity and
humanity we would all wish our religious leaders to have. Lots of
excellent acting and an interesting - and slightly scary - storyline,
keeps the attention. At one point, I actually had to stop the playback
and go to make a cup of tea - an old trick to break the tension that I
haven't used for several years when watching a TV programme... A good
sign. Great start to what I hope will be a first rate series.
My only concern is that it might be a bit of a one trick pony and I wonder how we're going to get past that. But for the time being, thumbs up and all systems go! A success.
