Dark is worth persevering with as the tension is ratcheted from gently claustrophobic to actively unnerving, and the decades-straddling plot settles into an web of conspiracies and buried secrets.

The time travel conceit does more than give us a window into how these families have evolved over many decades - it's brings a whole new meaning to "things are not quite what they seem here."
