Astonishing, gripping, surprising. Utterly memorable characters. I chanced on this halfway through an episode, and had NO idea what was going on, or what the genre was. I actually thought it was an episode of Dr Who (which I don't watch). Once I worked out what was going on, I had to stop watching, and find out how to start at the beginning. So I was BLOWN AWAY. Astonishing. Genius auteur stuff - utterly unmissable.
Awesome series, with some style. One of my favourite of all time, and one of the most intriguing characters on TV in Gatehouse [Stephen Rea has always impressed me]. The opening theme too <3 Rafe Spall's character is horrendous, but don't let this put you off. Reminds me I need to rewatch it again, for the third time. If ever there was a series I wanted to see a second series of which never happened, it is this.
