Critic Reviews for SS-GB Miniseries

It's so well done it will have you racing online to buy the rest of the wonderful Deighton's novels.

May 5, 2017 | Full Review…

Deighton's novel and the compelling dramatisation by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade are backed up by Philipp Kadelbach's direction: everything in these dark November afternoons is murky, smoky and above all grey. No vivid colours, no bold statement.

It's hard to find fault with the series; for the next month, I am going to look forward to Sunday nights mightily.

There are plenty of human strands woven into a murder plot that feels satisfyingly convoluted.

Needless to say, nobody expects a drama set in Nazi-occupied Britain to be a romp. Nonetheless, [SS-GB] was in danger of going about its business with such plodding solemnity as to be a bit dull.

There were occasions when the odd scene felt only one French maid away from 'Allo 'Allo reimagined. That said, SS-GB was bold, brave and largely carried by the excellent Sam Riley, who is surely the coolest Fedora-hat-wearer since Humphrey Bogart.

It's the ambiguous Archer who keeps the show from becoming just a clever creative-writing exercise.

If you're unsure of how much Nazis-won-the-war alternative-history drama you can handle you can start with this gripping BBC miniseries.

Prepare for a hell of a ride ahead over the next five weeks.
