It may be inspired by real events, but we are strongly advised to take nowt for gospel.

It's excellent: understated, rather lovely to look at, beautifully acted. Above all, I think it has something quite subtle to say about the way we all make stories of our lives.

Dec 3, 2018 | Full Review…

It's all very well done, with a great feeling for period in the suburban London of the 1960s, but I can't really envisage where it might go from here and I'm not interested enough to find out.

[It's] a first-rate mystery, but this complex blend of deception and romance proved to be even better than hoped.

Dec 6, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

It may be a cliché to say that we can never really know anybody completely, but Alison Wilson learned it in the hardest possible way.

Dec 5, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It is a bizarre and compelling real- life story of spies and betrayal.

Dec 4, 2018 | Full Review…

Hawes, as ever, is magnificent, and the sense of suburban alienation in this everyday story of spies and deception is beautifully maintained.

Dec 4, 2018 | Full Review…

Ruth Wilson is quite compelling as her own gran, both as the young bride and the older widow.

Dec 4, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Ruth Wilson shoulders it all, holding the screen as both the girlish young secretary and the betrayed matriarch.

Dec 4, 2018 | Full Review…

The period detail is impeccable, from wartime to 1960s suburbia.
