The dialogue is so richly silted with self-help banalities, we might as well be watching a Meghan and Harry biopic. There's also something exceedingly creepy about its retro, soft-porny direction...if only it had not seemed so tediously 21st century.
We haven't met Achilles yet, so there is plenty of time for things to get hysterical, but Troy: Fall of a City might just be a fresh, psychologically knotty take on one of the greatest tales of them all.
Still, this new eight-part series begins to grip as the various pieces interlock.
Yet, while the dialogue there was also a seamless combination of the portentous and the banal, Troy takes the process a whole lot further, with a script that seems pitched somewhere between a particularly corny Hollywood epic and a play by Ernie Wise.
