Critic Reviews for Harlots Season 2

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

If the plot doesn't seem entirely worthy of this cast of fabulous females (a tip of the tricorne hat to the razor-eyed Kate Fleetwood as Nancy, part dandy highwayman, part dominatrix), the writing (by Moira Buffini) frequently sparkles.

It... provides a still-relevant battle cry of resistance and a reminder of the resilience of the human spirit, which in itself makes for worthy viewing.

The script is pared back with a few well-crafted lines...But the real spectacle of the drama is provided by the gaudy colours and lavish outfits.

Jan 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Harlots is a lavish period piece where the dirt and scum of the streets come to great life, but it asks us to look slightly into the mirror and see our reflection in another century.

Aug 29, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a show that treats sex and gender dynamics with matter-of-fact horror and humor that feels honest but not solemn.

Aug 17, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a bit clunky, the strings showing a bit, but Harlots is nothing if not the queen of beautiful distraction.

Jul 12, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

It's a cutthroat business, the brothel caper in 18th-century London - and literally so as this busy period drama returns for an immediately engrossing second season.

If it keeps this up, the ride will be a miserable delight.

Jul 12, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

In the era #MeToo, the show has even more to say about how women from all walks of life suffer under a system that gives men all the power over their lives.
