Critic Reviews for The Replacement Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3)

There's nothing quite like an emotion-shredding potboiler to get the blood up on a chilly February night and BBC One's new three-parter The Replacement proved just the ticket.

Joe Ahearne's Glasgow-set drama went out in a blaze of laugh out loud battiness.

The Replacement, however, was not interested in Ellen and Paula playing a subtle game of chess. Instead, they got to play a hysterical game of Jenga, each scene constantly built up in order to collapse spectacularly.

It was cunningly directed.

It's all hugely enjoyable tosh, a cross between The Hand That Rocks The Cradle and Single White Female, in an environment in which no one bats an eyelid when various cast members elect to spend time alone in building sites late at night.

At first, to be honest, The Replacement worried me enormously.

Perhaps Mad Men, This Life and All About Eve were on to something. In any case, this is the juiciest melodrama since Doctor Foster.

It was remarkable for many things. The skill of the storytelling was one: writer and director Joe Ahearne ratcheted the tension in ever-credible gradations, yet to the extent that by the end you were left blinking, asking: how did it get to this?

It's a joyously bonkers, highly psychological melodrama that starts with a foot in reality and then runs wild. It's ridiculously addictive, though.

Great cast, refreshingly set in Glasgow, nice stab at some good old-fashioned melodrama, and what's not to love about a story featuring two strong female protagonists that doesn't revolve around them fighting over a man.
