T-Meter Title | Year
4/5 91% The Crown: Season 3 (TV, 2016) It could have been jarring, and sometimes it veers dangerously in that direction. But actually, the opening episodes do a smart job of introducing (or reintroducing) each character. - Radio Times EDIT

2/5 64% The Morning Show: Season 1 (TV, 2019) This thing must have cost so much money to make. And yet it is deeply, disappointingly mediocre. - Radio Times EDIT

50% MotherFatherSon: Season 1 (TV, 2019) Miserable and shocking as it may be, it made for powerful television. How can a drama be so hard to watch - and yet so good? - Radio Times EDIT

88% Year of the Rabbit: Series 1 (TV, 2019) It's a strange kind of comedy - but it is also brilliant. - Radio Times EDIT

87% Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life (TV, 2000-2016) A Year In The Life does more than serve up another helping of the same thing. There are novel ideas here. We see our beloved characters go to new places, aided by the expanse of 90-minute episodes with no advert breaks. - Radio Times EDIT

88% Line of Duty: Series 05 (TV, 2012) With epic interrogation scenes, surprise betrayals, grisly murders, untold secrets, massive twists... well, it's just good to be back. - Radio Times EDIT

75% The Split: Miniseries (TV, 2018) Having begun my relationship with The Split in a spirit of rose-tinted optimism and delight, rushing headlong into romance with Nicola Walker's acting abilities and Stephen Mangan's comic timing, I am sorry to report that the love affair is over. - Radio Times EDIT

56% Liar: Season 1 (TV, 2017) Liar is the sort of psychological thriller that will leave you lying awake in bed, turning over the evidence in your mind and trying to get at the truth - even though the answer remains elusive. - Radio Times EDIT

70% Next of Kin: Series 1 (TV, 2018) The opener leaves you frustrated and only vaguely wondering what happens next - and for a "thriller" that's a problem. - Radio Times EDIT

78% Collateral: Miniseries (TV, 2018) All these threads start to pull together and the convoluted story becomes clearer. That's not to say that the threads wrap up neatly into a little bow - but there is a satisfying ending, of sorts. - Radio Times EDIT

90% The Long Song: Series 1 (TV, 2018) BBC1's new drama The Long Song is so finely-tuned and carefully-balanced that it'll break your heart - and make you laugh at the same time. - Radio Times EDIT

94% Ordeal by Innocence: Miniseries (TV, 2018) Director Sandra Goldbacher delivers the on-screen version of a page-turner. And it's gripping. - Radio Times EDIT

76% The Miniaturist: Miniseries (TV, 2018) There is lots to set up in the first episode of The Miniaturist, so if you're wondering whether to hang on and watch the hour-long second episode, the answer is: stick with it. The pay-off comes, and it does not disappoint. - Radio Times EDIT

73% Trust Me: Season 1 (TV, 2017) It's a tense drama and very well written by screenwriter/doctor Dan Sefton, but it only works so well because [Jodi] Whittaker is so good. - Radio Times EDIT

90% The Crown: Season 2 (TV, 2016) Claire Foy and Matt Smith rule - and The Crown continues its supremacy. - Radio Times EDIT

85% Comrade Detective: Season 1 (TV, 2017) The case itself is full of twists and suspense and plenty of 80s cop drama cliches, but the real genius comes with the political edge. - Radio Times EDIT

64% Loch Ness: Season 1 (TV, 2017) ITV has promised that the loch will become a "character in its own right," which is probably a good thing because it surely has more depth than any of the other characters in this show (pun intended). - Radio Times EDIT

89% SS-GB: Miniseries (TV, 2017) SS-GB refuses to spell things out or simplify moral dilemmas. But at the heart is one simple question: in Archer's place, what would you do? - Radio Times EDIT

82% Anne with an E: Season 1 (TV, 2017-2018) Moira has done the clever thing of preserving the essence of the original Anne -- even borrowing chunks of dialogue word-for-word from the novel -- while also putting her own spin on the story. - Radio Times EDIT

92% American Gods: Season 1 (TV, 2017) All in all, American Gods does justice to Neil Gaiman's novel -- and as long as viewers are prepared to be a little patient, it should reveal itself as one of the best TV series of 2017. - Radio Times EDIT
