Dark British drama which deserves to be seen.
15 September 2017 | by anitagammansSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this show immensely. Tim Roth was, as per, absolutely flawless in his performance - the man can do no wrong in my eyes - Oliver Coopersmith's performance also stood out. Other reviewers have said that they felt the show deteriorated as it progressed but I would have to disagree with them. The tone of the show did go from a light, almost comedic feel to a very dark, serious, and dangerous one pretty much straight away but isn't that what all crime dramas should do? It did retain its black-comedy elements though which I enjoyed. It kept me guessing, I didn't necessarily understand exactly why something was happening in the moment but answers were eventually given and I felt satisfied with those answers and I'm looking forward to where they take the show in season 2. It's a brilliant British drama within the setting of a beautiful Canadian town; i definitely recommend it.
