I'm about to get this on iTunes because I have seen it all on the bbc I player. I cannot wait for the blue-Rae copy and plus the fact I want to watch this wherever I go. This series is the best thing on TV since Game of Thrones. It is creepy, suspenseful, spine chilling with a complex plot for anyone who loves trying to figure things out, will enjoy. There are so many unleft answers. Especially the cliffhanger end.
I'm certain that even Stephen Hawking would enjoy the time theories in this
Please...please put subtitles on this!
Beautiful, eerie, and needs a 2nd series
Beautifully filmed, beautifully costumed, gorgeous locations, wonderfully acted and directed, and excellently scripted. It’s not ‘horror’ - it’s a bit spooky, and a lot eerie.
The first episode might be a little slow for some people but there’s a lot of scene-setting that’s needed to set up the next 5 episodes. Having watched the full series on iPlayer, I know what’s coming…what it’s building to, and the overall story arc is compelling and ultimately complex. It could be a standalone series, but there are enough unanswered questions (especially the final scene of episode 6), that warrant a second outing.
I cannot praise this series enough, and I hope it receives the recognition it deserves - both in terms of viewing figures and at awards season.
And please, if there is any justice in this currently crazy world, we need series 2 confirmed - there are questions that need to be answered.
