Quite a gritty one this one...
16 April 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

...but also quite a compelling one. It starts off in a very dark and gritty tone, with the brutal murder of a schoolteacher and a student, but the story after that never ceases to be well constructed and compelling. This is helped very much by the excellent production values, beautiful music, good writing and decent direction. And all the performances are very well done, I always delight in seeing John Thaw on screen and he doesn't disappoint and neither does Geraldine James as the lovely Eleanor Harker.

Overall, gritty but compelling, and definitely worth a watch at least once. 9/10 Bethany Cox
