Critic Reviews for The Guilty: Season 1

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

Greig is one of the few British actresses on the small screen today... who instantly appear not as characters, but as fully fleshed humans. Her presence, above all, is the reason to give this series your time.

Although fans of traditional detective fiction may not get what they expected, the emotional payoff more than compensates.

October 20, 2015 | Full Review…

This promised to be a masterful drama, and it didn't disappoint.

October 14, 2015 | Full Review…

Drama, drama everywhere! Would that any of it was genuinely compelling.

October 26, 2015 | Full Review…

[The] familiarity is a problem, but the bigger problems are the dreary tastefulness of Edward Bazalgette's direction and the thin, inconsequential nature of the mystery, which limps to a particularly unsatisfying conclusion.

October 23, 2015 | Full Review…

The similarities between last night's The Guilty and award winning ITV thriller Broadchurch were glaringly obvious. Missing child? Tick. Attractive mother? Tick. Brooding father? Tick. Detective trying to juggle work and family life? Tick, tick, tick.
