Audience Reviews for A Very English Scandal: Season 1
Jun 12, 2021Wonderful. Compelling. A Very English Scandal is a miniseries about British politician Jeremy Thorpe trying to erase all traces of his relationship with Norman Scott, which jeopardizes his political career. The series is exciting from the start: the storyline is very smooth and there are no empty moments. The interpretations of Hugh Grant and Ben Whishaw are excellent and both, in particular Whishaw, manage to fit perfectly into the characters. The direction is very good as well as the script and the cinematography. A truly entertaining miniseries to watch lasting only three hours.
Feb 27, 2021It's always exciting when something crazy enough to only be fictional is based on a true story. I love the fact that this was a very short (3 1-hour episode) miniseries rather than a multi-season show or a very long movie. Would love to see this happen more frequently. The chemistry and performances by Hugh Grant and Ben Wishaw were out of this world.
Feb 14, 2021Ben Whishaw and Hugh Grant are riveting in this 3 part BBC miniseries about love, power, politics, and corruption. Russell T Davies does it yet again. Superb!
May 14, 2019Such a great show! Excellent from beginning to end. Hugh Grant and Ben Whishaw did such a great job.
May 10, 2019A well-made TV serial on a truly engrossing political character. Hugh Grant's performance is his finest ever. Whishaw is almost equally powerful and good. It also helps that the serial is wrapped up in three hours - extremely tightly wound and well-edited.
May 08, 2019Great acting, amusing characters.
Mar 29, 2019Breathtaking brilliant work by all concerned. And proves once again that Russel T Davies is a genius.
Mar 20, 2019Astonishingly good acting and a stranger-than-fiction tale that will make you by turns laugh, cringe and cry.
Mar 16, 2019De lo mejor que vi en 2018.
Jan 30, 2019Very well directed, in a very English style. I did not expect less from Frears.
