Enjoyable
8 October 2018 | by MaxmillianMSee all my reviews

This is clearly a take on Guardian vs The Sun (or Mail) and it is entertaining and the characters are believable. A very entertaining show. Ben Chaplin really can play a ruthless man very well, and I thin Charlotte Riley is just fabulous and very versatile. I hope they will renew this.
