Critic Reviews for Silk: Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (5)

The result was a perfectly OK hour of telly - marred only by the fact that we've come to expect a bit more than that from Moffat.

American viewers could have a perfectly fine time watching this season but probably won't be panting in anticipation for the next.

Silk deals frankly with the sexism and classism that still hold sway in Britain. However, where an American show would go big, broad and outraged, Silk keeps everything confined within a more normal range of human reaction.

The real problem... is the tiredness and predictability of the material - the sense that we've seen it all before and didn't really believe it the first time.

Smartly written and highly entertaining-a treat, in short, and at two hours a sumptuous one.

August 23, 2013 | Full Review…

Although the series... sometimes teeters on the edge of melodrama, the characters and performances maintain our interest.
