I gave this 4 stars because of David Tennant. I think he is a brilliant actor. The story line is difficult to follow at the beginning of the series. I thought there were lots of underlying feelings between the couples and the story came together very slowly. The series goes back and forth and follows a zig zag path between the people involved and the things that happen. Too many secrets and unspoken feelings in this story.
3* love the actors but this is a long and dragged out series. Should have been over in 2 hours.
A tragic house fire in a small town where everyone knows everyone's business, or believes so. Better than expected mystery that is less on suspense than character study of the denizens and their different views of whodunit and whydunit.
I adore both David Tennant and Cush Jumbo. They make up for the story line short comings.
Sorry to say that I found this to be a letdown. The flash backs are confusing and convoluted, and the story downright disturbing. I did not find myself connecting with any of the characters. If you are hoping for Broadchurch, you will likely be disappointed.
I watched two episodes (half the series) last night and was initially confused by and then annoyed by the flashbacks. Uncertain as to whether or not to continue I have just checked the comments and decided that although I do not have anything else at hand to pass my Covid evenings.....I won't bother seeing the last two episodes.
I did not really like any of the characters enough to stick it out with them.
A convoluted tale of a troubled marriage, and the couples friends and family dealing with the fallout. Great actors, beautifully filmed, it should have been excellent, but missed the mark. I was disturbed by the best friends casual adultery with her friends husband, yet was so deceitful to her mentally depressed friends face. It seemed the best friend was resentful, and jealous of her friend, yet so concerned for her fragile friend's well being. It did not ring true to me.
Suspense-free couples-klatch murder plot with cute kids throughout. Caution: 3 kids burn to death. They don't show you the deaths, but the bodies are bagged and brought out from the scene.
Lots of swearing and screaming. Couples fighting. Woman who can't conceive not as bothered by it as you might think. Affairs. Blah, blah, blah. Tedious. Tried to force myself to get through the 4th episode. Just didn't care. Also, easy to get confused from one scene to another as to who's who on secondary characters.
I did like what's-his-name's acting- the Dr. Who guy. But the script just doesn't go anywhere.
Definitely TV14, with my idea of an R rating. I did not get very far in to gain that opinion. Not my kind of film...did not complete. BOOOOOO!
Very intense, psychological crime story set in a lovely Scottish village (contemporary times) with seemingly lovely people. To say more would perhaps give too much away. Great acting (David Tennant is amazing). It's not spooky, as in supernatural, but reality can be scary enough. Also, the British do this kind of thing so well!
Marital, monogamist, child-rearing domesticity run amok. If expecting something revelatory here, you're out of luck.
Involves murder of children. Very dark and depressing. To those of you who can handle this sort of drama then enjoy but for us...we are still in shock !
