Critic Reviews for National Treasure Season 1

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (9)

National Treasure, too, reminds of how much can be done in a limited-episode format, tackling an impossibly tricky subject within a tight frame. That it leaves you wanting more is only one of its achievements.

Be assured that National Treasure pays off in every way a British crime drama can pay off.

Mar 3, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

A strong, challenging drama with great performances.

Feb 27, 2017 | Full Review…

I'd suggest that the main thing which could stop National Treasure making the transition from a good to a great drama is its own somewhat painful sense of responsibility.

Sep 6, 2018 | Full Review…

In particular, the final episode - which revealed both the jury's verdict, and the truth behind the Finchley accusations - was sickeningly tense.

Jun 22, 2018 | Full Review…

Coltrane, Waters and Riseborough are brilliant in this compelling drama.

Apr 23, 2018 | Full Review…

Whatever the answer, "National Treasure" is a well-acted and gripping drama that reminds us the images celebrities present of themselves to the world are often only skin-deep.

Dec 27, 2017 | Full Review…

This is gripping stuff, particularly if you've ever wondered what happens to the people whose sins are splashed across newspaper headlines.

Mar 3, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

There's an obvious familiarity to the subject matter, but with National Treasure, Thorne never makes it seem rote, boring or insignificant.

Mar 2, 2017 | Full Review…

A smart set up and a strong opening episode are derailed by a middling mid section. At the very least, though, National Treasure delivers a denouement worth the wait.
