Movie Qween rated it 7/10 on 2 February 2020 and wrote:
This was a decently paced thriller with a lot of different characters that play into the secrets. Everyone is hiding something! I really liked the main actors especially Richard Armitage and Siobhan finernan. I didn't absolutely love the ending but I did like certain aspects of it. I wish I could give this a 7.5 instead of just a 7! Binged in two days, love that Netflix is giving us decent thrillers
8 pretty much interesting and dramatic episodes filled with twists, plots and sub plots. Enough characters to never get boring and fortunately though many characters never confusing to follow, as it does not over egg the flashbacks and the story goes along from one crisis and cliffhanger to another.
My only slight criticism is a couple of the younger characters can be annoying but in the main great chemistry and acting throughout, by some familiar UK based actors.
Well done Netflix, a worthy addition to the British drama thriller genre.
MGN Rating 7.5/10
