People on a list are dying, suspected are three witches, at the heart of it is the wealthy Mark Easterbrook, who's name is on the list.
First of all, where is Rather Gorman, vital to the story, he needed to be here, however the heart of the story is retained, the window dressing is significantly changed, almost in the style of The Wicker Man.
Visually appealing to say the least, it looks amazing, stunning detail. Great acting, Rufus Sewell stands out, he carries this first part. Very slow to start, it does open up, and becomes suitably atmospheric and sinister.
A whole week until the second part though? BBC, the scheduling for this show is terrible, a two hour special, not up against Endeavour would have been great. 7/10
