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 »

User Reviews

 
A fascinating story.
27 December 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

The BBC proved once again that 2018 has really been the year for drama, Mrs Wilson follows the likes of Killing Eve, The Bodyguard, with another exceptional series, Mrs Wilson. A show that must have been incredibly close to home for the lead actress, Ruth Wilson.

The story was fascinating, the way it was told was captivating, how on Earth could someone you love so much, hide so much? Fascinating, it just gets deeper and more complicated with each scene.

The performances all round are excellent, but the problem is, that when Ruth Wilson is on screen, she's just so captivating, that it's hard to focus on anything else, she really is that good.

Superbly acted, fantastic production values, and a captivating story, if I had one criticism, I would say I think it could have been done over two parts.

Excellent. 8/10
