Critic Reviews for Thirteen Miniseries

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (7)

Comer...delivers a stunning performance, playing on many levels at once, her growing disbelief as she understands she has spent much of her prime so isolated, convincing and heartbreaking.

Aug 5, 2016 | Full Review…

Thirteen takes white-knuckle turns that elevate it from the expected.

Jun 24, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The premise for BBC3's first big online drama release is simple: kidnapped girl miraculously escapes her captor after years living in fear. But the story that unfolds is much more complicated.

Apr 26, 2017 | Full Review…

The crime itself is supposed to be one of the major alluring elements of Thirteen, but the more we learn about the case the less enticing it becomes.

Apr 25, 2017 | Full Review…

One of the great things about this series is that it forces you to confront your own lazy habits of thought, like judging characters in circumstances about which you know nothing.

Aug 17, 2016 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The series paints an appropriately complex picture of how this kind of abuse works to break down the mind of its target.

Jun 22, 2016 | Full Review…

Created and written by Marnie Dickens (Hollyoaks), the five-part series is most magnetic when the camera - no matter if it's lingering on a close-up or framing her in a corner - captures the subtly changing nuances of Ivy's face.

Jun 23, 2016 | Full Review…

For a crime story it is unusually gentle and generous toward its characters; it is not cynical or despairing - indeed, it is in the end a love story, or rather, several interlocking love stories set in contrast to the pathological mockery of one.

Jun 23, 2016 | Full Review…

Switching from subdued to rageful, actor Jodie Comer convinces you of both Ivy's fears and her feral side.

Jun 23, 2016 | Full Review…

We respond so immediately to any story about a missing child that we may even overlook weaknesses in writing, performances or direction. That isn't a problem with Thirteen.
