fabulous...There is a kind of nightmarish glamour to the whole thing...a story and an execution that will yet come to bite complacent viewers firmly on the ass

Lucy Mangan The Guardian

it looks fabulous

Tom Sutcliffe The Independent

dark, engrossing and very hard to resist

Keith Watson Metro

This lively adaptation... starts very promisingly indeed. The script is zingy, the setting filthy and corpulent, and there's plenty of mystery to be unravelled by the impressive cast

Rebecca Nicholson The Guardian

a deep, dark treat. It could turn out to be if not the most original then still the outstanding drama of the year.

Andrew Billen The Times

compelling, beautifully shot and vividly acted

The Telegraph

this adaptation takes traditional costume drama and treats it with an almost surreal sexual abandon

David Chater The Times

This isn't your usual poised and primped costume drama...it's period drama for fans of David Lynch

David Butcher Radio Times
