It's still well worth seeing.
16 January 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Russell T. Davies struck gold once again, following on from the success of Dark Season came Century Falls. The story of a Mother and daughter's arrival in the Village of Century Falls, a place where outsiders aren't welcome, and there are no children.

I can remember as a twelve year old being enthralled by this series, a lover of drama even back then, this was a cut above. Even watching it as an adult, I'm struck by just how good it still is, the script is incredibly clever, much darker than any other show made for kids. It deals with some quite big themes, some of which now you'll only see in dramas for adults.

A trio of unknown teens, and a group of seasoned actors all perform very well, Bernard Kay, Mary Wimbush and Georgine Anderson are all especially good.

I remember those opening credits and that music vividly.

It holds up very well. 9/10
