Trivia

The flagship drama in the BBC's 2017 Gay Britannia season, a series of programmes commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act. Up until 1967, homosexuality in the United Kingdom was a criminal offence. The removal of the Act meant that gay men could consort together without the fear of being sent to prison. See more »

Needed more time
8 August 2017 | by weekoldmilkSee all my reviews

All together they are very beautiful stories. Unfortunately they are placed into two 1 hour parts. They needed about double the time to marinate in more storytelling. Each of the individual relationships were so complex I was left wanting to see them develop more gradually. Despite this, the excellent cast (and the director) do all that they can to avoid it all coming off clumsily. There is a lot of beauty on the screen, especially with part 1 of the two.

They were able to make me care about the characters and the parallels between the two accounts, but I think it could have been much richer by delving deeper into each of their stories.
