IT HAS EVERYTHING
8 May 2019 | by grahamvrSee all my reviews

What an excellent series, very well written, as far as I could find, by an older writer. The twists and turns will keep the viewer waiting in suspense for answers. Treachery at every turn, characters and dialogue excellent. A good even pace is achieved from the opening episode. Once I started watching I couldn't turn my tv off. I watched it all through in one sitting, all 6 episodes. An excellent Canadian an Ireland coproduction. Hope to see further by this team.
