A classic
22 January 2018 | by knvixenSee all my reviews

I'm sure that this story exists somewhere in Greek mythology. It contains everything of life, with the rich and successful Ray Winstone character being made to pay for his wrongdoing in a beautifully suitable way. This series introduced me to Mark Strong and I was completely bewitched, his screen presence is masterful. Only the BBC could do justice to this slightly strange tale, and it is a masterpiece.
