So so much better than hoped for
17 December 2018 | by diedaily77See all my reviews

Expected only the usual stereotypes of immigrant homeland vs. UK culture and values (they were there but they were so delicately handled and minimally impactful on the central plot) and instead got a well-acted, well-scripted, and engaging show which got me empathizing with and rooting for the protagonist and her allies.
