There's some real strength in The Accident.

The Accident is worth a look, especially for those who have appreciated Thorne's other work.

Nov 20, 2019 | Full Review…

It is highly compelling, and not just because the ramifications of the explosion won't be pretty.

Nov 19, 2019 | Full Review…

Its energy comes from the confrontational anger of the characters and the writer's anger at injustice.

Jan 16, 2020 | Full Review…

Writer Jack Thorne has constructed his drama with an almost mathematical approach to apportioning blame.

Nov 19, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It has taken two full episodes, but The Accident has finally found its heart. Curiously, for a drama about the deaths of eight children, it has felt a little clinical, a little too mannered.

Nov 19, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The tension is tight, the story crisp and fast-moving and offers a stinging rebuke of the power elite.

Jan 13, 2020 | Full Review…

The British series that I liked the most this year. [Full Review in Spanish]

Dec 31, 2019 | Full Review…

The Accident starts off so strong and nosedives into mediocrity so quickly and completely that I initially assumed it must have been based on a true story, because otherwise why write a show so free of drama?

Dec 5, 2019 | Full Review…

The Accident is one of those shows that get going quickly but doesn't need a ton of exposition to hook you in.

Nov 22, 2019 | Full Review…

The emotional power of the story was undeniable.

Nov 19, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Despite its pratfalls, as a series, The Accident did succeed in being both emotionally affecting and psychologically intense.

Audience Reviews for The Accident: Season 1

  • 22h ago
    Frankly, derivative and predictable
  • Dec 02, 2019
    Most boring show with absolutely ludicrous plot points and scenes.
  • Nov 27, 2019
    The series was simply boring with the ending adding nothing to the story. I was looking forward to the lead actress based on her previous role as a police sergeant but this was a letdown. Don't waste your time
