Critic Consensus: A commanding Helen McCrory brings exhilarating conviction to every paranoia-infused scene in Fearless, even as the series charges unabashedly into melodrama.

What I love about Fearless is its messiness: Emma's frantic and complicated life, and her relish for every single one of its constituent parts, feel so wonderfully replete.

If Fearless was a touch overwrought, with too many characters jostling for attention and a great deal of threat looming without consequence, it was also gripping and undeniably intriguing.

Everything about the drama screams: "I'm the hottest political thriller this year, watch me!" But it doesn't quite pull off its uncompromising billing.

The result looks like being a classy and dark paranoid political thriller - but also, perhaps, an unluckily timed one.

Sep 6, 2018 | Full Review…

A hook of a central case, tantalising layers and complexities, international intrigue and codenames... put that all together with a performer as strong as McCrory and it adds up to thrilling TV.

Helen McCrory's performance in Fearless in captivating, but it might be the only interesting thing about the show.

Oct 26, 2017 | Full Review…

With her high cheekbones and saleable purple leather jacket, McCrory's flawed renegade carried a drama so far overcrowded with ingredients and exposition.

By the third episode, the story has grown far more complex, leaving a lot to unravel in the final three episodes of the miniseries.

Oct 26, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

In these careening political times there is, at least, a hard pulse of distrust towards authority to which this show cannily panders. Perhaps Fearless will not squander our sceptical sympathies. But right now it's hard not to fear the worst.

It is all fabulously confident and classy stuff.
