I just finished it yesterday and thought the acting was good, but the story was just okay. I was thrown off by Acorn showing there were 8 episodes, when it turns out there were only 6 and the last two were just behind-the-scenes features. I was thinking, "Wow, this is going to be the rare show that solves the mystery in ep 6 and then has two more eps about how the crimes have affected the characters!" Not so lol.
But having subscribed to Acorn and to Britbox a few months ago, I must say it's made me quite the Siobhan Finneran fangirl. I loved to hate her on Downton, and thought she was fantastic on Happy Valley, but I think it was seeing her do comedy in Benidorm that really turned me into such an admirer. She can do anything, so I watch all her projects now.
I loved Cush Jumbo in it, but the rest of it fell totally flat for me. I know it's practically blasphemy to say this, but I've learned that I'm just not a big David Tennant fan. I just don't connect with his acting for some reason.
I really, really enjoyed that one. The lead actress played a character on Grantchester that I think everyone else hated, but I really liked, so I was pleasantly surprised to see her in this. And I thought the supporting cast was great. I'd be happy to see them do a second season.
My new favorite detective show, second only now to my beloved Vera, has become Scott & Bailey. I binged all five seasons in about a week and totally fell in love with it. I wasn't familiar with any of the main cast but now I adore Lesley Sharp and Suranne Jones. I just started Doctor Foster, with Suranne (and to my surprise, Jodie Comer), last night.
