Goofs

Many of the street scenes occur during the period of the Blitz (in London) where draconian lighting restrictions for public road traffic. Buses are shown with all lights blazing away normally, both inside views and exterior views, and no windows are netted to protect passengers and crew from blast damage. No vehicles have masked headlights, either. See more »

Ruth Wilson Kills It
14 December 2018 | by lollyfizz1See all my reviews

Worth watching for the amazingly talented and beautiful Ruth Wilson at her very best! This is such an almighty tall tale, when I saw it was a "true story" or "based on real events" I had my doubts! And then just before I watched episode 3 I learnt it was Ruth's actual grandmother she was playing! You see every kind of emotion on her face as her character learns more about the man she loved, and how blurred her reality actually was.

Ruth is AMAZE - she deserves a BAFTA or something! She totally outshines Keeley Hawes -who, it is rumoured, is the favourite, for all of her 8 mins in the Bodyguard. But like, whatever.
