A very promising start.
12 March 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

I found this a thoroughly entertaining, engaging and thought provoking drama. If the rest carries on like this, it's going to be a gripping watch. It's a different slant on terrorism, and also portrays the racism that still sadly exists in the UK and worldwide today.

A different take on the usual terrorist drama, we see the effects of it on a British Pakistani family.

Great production values, and an excellent performance from the incredible and beautiful Archie Panjabi. Great start. 8/10
