News & Interviews for The Halcyon: Season 1
The Halcyon was complete hokum, with reheated plots aplenty (love across the racial/sexual/class divide) and suspension of disbelief compulsory. But with a cast this good, none of it mattered too much.
There was too much going on, and almost none of it for any good reason.
As well getting the classical references right, it also clearly ticks a lot of boxes on the Downton Abbey replacement checklist.
There isn't anything original about The Halcyon (apart from the excellent titles and theme music), but in spite of this it works. Perhaps it's the fairy dust.
