Critic Reviews for A Confession Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

All the performances are strong and it is a tactful rendering of the story. It's more of a slow mood piece than a pacy, Broadchurch-style crime drama, but that feels appropriate.

Sep 10, 2019 | Full Review…

With fictional dead young women being such a fixture of police dramas, I'm always wary of the ethics of plundering real cases. Still, it was delicately done.

Sep 6, 2019 | Full Review…

A Confession's first episode doesn't get there quite yet, however. It is cripplingly low on moments of interest, hinging on intrigue to keep us invested, or at least pre-existing awareness of what's to come.

Sep 6, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It is a sad, ruthless dramatisation of ruthlessly sad events that asks - especially in later episodes - profound questions about how we want to - and how we should - obtain justice for the murdered and missing.

Top Critic

This was simply a terrifically well written and acted, and terribly sad, drama that gripped with the inescapable pain experienced by everyone involved in the case.

Sep 6, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A Confession continues to do a superb job in humanising the aftermath of a horrifying crime.

Sep 24, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

It's shaded, human, credible and tawdry, as in life, and heavily (rightly) slanted on the community and family fallout of two missing girls rather than whizzy police cunning.

Sep 11, 2019 | Full Review…

I did have to wonder about what was true and what wasn't... But still, this is gripping.

Sep 9, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A Confession is as unshowily competent as its main character. It sets about its work with the same careful seriousness with which Fulcher is shown to lead the search for a young woman reported missing in March 2011.

Sep 5, 2019 | Full Review…

A Confession vividly depicted the mental power of denial.
