    The script is tauter, the photography more claustrophobic than ever Stuart Jeffries
    The Guardian

    it isn’t afraid to challenge its viewers with big existential themes. That each feature-length episode is self-contained and has a resolution makes the whole experience seem big too, and satisfying.
