    Well-acted and scrpted as you would expect from a British production. Perfectly pitched telling of a bizarre moment in British politics. My only reservation is that Hugh Grant relies too much on a rather stiff charm and fails to capture the belligerent malevolence of Thorpe's murderous intent. Otherwise, very satisfying.
  • What a great subject!

    I dimly recall the basic thread of this story and was eager to see the show. Beautifully set, well acted, and very evocative of the times. Only two minor quibbles: 1) for the price, I expected subtitles. So much of the conversation is whispered, or sotto voce, and I cannot hear what they are saying as I am older and hard of hearing. 2) Although Ben Whishaw is very good in the role of Norman Scott, it is rather difficult to picture him as a male model and bodybuilder.

    Being British TV, the acting is impeccable and the series hard to fault. Hugh Grant captures the character of Jeremy Thorpe and his performance holds the show together. There is little drama or tension because the outcome is already known. The interest lies in the characters, the class system, the hypocrisy over homsexuality and the way power can corrupt justice .
