I'm sure that this story exists somewhere in Greek mythology. It contains everything of life, with the rich and successful Ray Winstone character being made to pay for his wrongdoing in a beautifully suitable way. This series introduced me to Mark Strong and I was completely bewitched, his screen presence is masterful. Only the BBC could do justice to this slightly strange tale, and it is a masterpiece.
