Rather good.
2 January 2021 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

This is a very energetic, fast paced drama. Visually it looks so good, the production values are excellent. A particularly good cast, once again I'm impressed with Jenna Coleman. It's one of those dramas that you need to concentrate hard on, as it is a little deep, and could be seen as confusing. After being starved of drama for obvious reasons, it was nice to start 2021 with something this good. You couldn't switch the BBC on without seeing a trailer for it, they certainly went to town to advertise it. Hard to fault. 8/10.
