A British gem
28 November 2020 | by johnhockpeSee all my reviews

This is one of the best shows I've seen recently. The writing is excellent and acting superb. The production is rich and detailed. If you are used to American shows, as I am, this is very different. Nothing flashy or fast paced. But it's so engrossing that I couldn't wait to watch the next, and then the next, and then it was done. I was so sorry to see there were only four episodes. The tragic character of Mr Whicher, beautifully portrayed by Paddy Considine, is sort of a common man Sherlock Holmes, although I almost hate to make that comparison. Mr Whicher is not driven by ego or fame or glory or money, but always by the search for Truth. I had never heard of the story or character, but I'm so glad I stumbled on this gem.
