Rare as Hen's teeth
7 October 2015 | by cmcastlSee all my reviews

Good supernatural drama these days on TV is as rare as Hen's teeth, as the saying goes.

Well done to ITV for presenting new and original drama such as this which the BBC has long given up doing.

I didn't previously know about the novels upon which this series was based.

In any event, there is a real hunger, I am sure, for non-formulaic supernatural/crime drama and I do hope to see another series.

All the performances were top-notch and the production values were good.

For those who have belief in these things, the fate of the world is not determined by sociological forces but by what perhaps the Middle Ages more clearly saw as the eternal struggle between Good and evil.
