The story of a fierce, ordinary heroine, beautifully played. No fright wigs, no prosthetics. No need.

Winslet is absolutely superb - by turns funny, fierce and infuriating.

A compulsively watchable crime series that is full of twists you won't see coming.

It's powers derive as much from its enthralling focus on that town and its society as from the unsteady life and career of its heroine.

A tough watch whose early to middle chapters don't provide the kind of emotional catharsis that justifies all the hardship.

An ambitious attempt to do more than a routine crime show... doesn’t always work.

Gives Winslet space to deliver a performance that resists fireworks in favor of flickering doubts, insecurities and concerns.
