Episodes

DCI Caroline Goode first heard of Banaz Mahmod when her boyfriend reported her missing. Caroline discovered that Banaz had been to the police five times to report threats to life, even presenting a list of people wanting to kill her for shaming her family. Caroline searches for the people on Banaz' list and questions ringleader Ari, who denies the charges. But after speaking to estranged sister Bekhal and Kurdish activist, Dianna, Caroline soon realises that this could be a murder enquiry. Ep1

View Details

Caroline is relieved when a lead from the phone taps sends the search to Birmingham, where Banaz' body is found, but the DNA evidence is destroyed when a water pipe bursts. Keily's 'phone farming' pays off and Banaz' father is charged, as is Uncle Ari and soon the case is brought to the Old Bailey. It looks like the defence will win, until Bekhal gives courageous evidence behind a screen and the two men are handed life sentences. Caroline continues on to get the first ever extradition from Iraq. Ep2

Critic Reviews for Honour Series 1

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

Honour possesses a quiet authenticity that comes partly from Hawes - her performance is a study in controlled anguish - and partly from the way it was brought to television.

Oct 6, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Although Honour does what it can to ramp up the jeopardy... in truth the procedural isn't tortuous enough to carry a police or courtroom drama

Oct 6, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It was so delicately done. If there was horror, sorrow and respect were the more important things.

Oct 5, 2020 | Full Review…

If it touches one police officer who will act differently in future, or one young woman who realizes she does not have to live in terror of her father, her uncle, her cousins, it has to be worth it. Doesn't it?

Oct 5, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

All concerned did so with the minimum of fuss but maximum poignancy. This was a drama that was not afraid to show where it stood and what it felt.

Oct 7, 2020 | Full Review…

Honour is still a very good drama, but whether or not it assuages its critics' early fears remains to be seen.

Oct 6, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

There was a sensational turn by Rhianne Barreto as Banaz's elder sister, Bekhal.
