"Struck Down"
8 November 2017 | by colind888See all my reviews

Whoever did the casting for Series 6 should be immediately taken out with an RPG. What were you thinking?? Replacing the god-like Philip Winchester, Sullivan Stapleton, Richard Armitage, Robson Green, Rhona Mitra and Andrew Lincoln with 3 midgets and a barbie doll all with dodgy accents. And to make matters worse, 20 is now being run by a timid girl from the BBC with a crush on Lord Grantham. You could not have got it more wrong if you had picked actors from the phone book.

I was really looking forward to the new season but so far The Brave is looking more polished and believable TV at every level. Totally disappointed!!

10 out of 10 for Series 1-4, 8 out of 10 for Series 5 and 5 out of 10 for this sad imitation.

Addendum: SE6E7 - unbelievable plot, unbelievable acting, unbelievable script, unbelievable romance, unbelievable decision making - just pathetic!! Lowering my rating on Season 6 to 3 stars and that is purely for the anthem "short change hero" which is all this debacle has left. Time to move on - RIP!!
