This is such an engaging drama.
1 May 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

This very unusual drama is so utterly engaging, I still can't really decide what it is, it has drama, a touch of espionage, and something going on, that I can't quite classify. I'm almost glad that I can't pigeonhole it, because it is something so very different to watch.

There's the somewhat domestic story of the regular couple, and there's also the story of the guest actors, not the most engaging tale, as the outcome was a bit obviois, but it's the whole espionage vibe and performance of Ann Firbank that makes this so enjoyable. Firbank was terrific in this, such a strong performance.

Totally into this series. 8/10
