Brilliant and gritty British drama
22 October 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was pleasantly surprised at how gripping and harrowing this drama was. Yes the violence was gory and a bit much but I suspect necessary as this was historically accurate. The audience had to care and understand these plotters and showing the level of persecution at that time was essential in order to get the audience drawn in. As BBC i player have uploaded all 3 episodes I've now binge watched them all and I can happily say the momentum and pace gets much better in episodes 2 and 3. Harrington gives his best performance in the latter episodes, I was shocked at how good he actually was in this. His scenes with his son were particularly moving. All in all, British Drama at its best!. 10/10
