Restore a bit of faith
19 October 2018 | by ngnhSee all my reviews

Restore some faith in broken Britain, in multicultural Britain. Paddy Considine is superb! A standout performance for me. All the cast are superb, especially the main household Asian actors. The story to me was better and is a lot more original and unpredictable than The Bodyguard (a recent bbc hit) As per, the early episodes are excellent although the final may seem an anti-climax to some viewers - still a very unexpected hit. Series 2 incoming?
