Think Mad Men in London with doctors.

It's engaging enough, and the story lines... are diverting.

Aug 22, 2014 | Full Review…

Takes one hour of story and breaks it up into six episodes, dragging out secrets and indiscretions to a point where they cease to retain their intended meaning.

Sep 27, 2014 | Rating: D+ | Full Review…

Starting slowly, the series really gets going once some of the ties between the characters are revealed.

Sep 19, 2014 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Everything from the sets to the faces are overwhelmingly beautiful. It's the same kind of pomp and circumstance that makes Downton Abbey so much fun.

If Breathless isn't saying anything terribly new about the old days - Women had it tough! Secrets can ruin your life! - it is lyrical nonetheless, and some points do bear repeating.

Sep 9, 2014 | Full Review…

Doctors and nurses have been engaged in soapy doings since broadcasting's infancy, but seldom in a package quite as tantalizing as Breathless.

    Solid cast and an interesting watch. The ending was a bit contrived but it does set things up nicely for season two, which I would certainly watch. I've always found Jack Davenport's performances to be nuanced and engaging.
