User Reviews

So much potential, sad the doors closed on The Halcyon.
9 July 2017 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

The Halcyon proves how fickle the producers of TV series must be. The Halcyon starts off in a fairly average way I must say, but as it develops it becomes something totally engaging, and rather excellent.

Beautifully acted by all concerned, great performances from Steven Mackintosh, Olivia Williams, Liz White etc, but it was the constant brilliance from Hermione Corfield that I enjoyed most of all, she was superb as Emma.

Lavish production values, the Hotel in particular looked fabulous, gorgeous costumes, and a true sense of realism during the bombing scenes.

The series got better as it went on, the last few episodes in particular were excellent, I hope the petition that's going around encourages someone to take the series on, there are so many more stories to tell.

Excellent drama, 8/10
