Starts out well, but it gets uglier and uglier. Not necessarily in a good way.
1 March 2017 | by kire1975See all my reviews

I've seen two episodes so far. The characters are very likable in the beginning, but they get more and more ugly as the series goes on. The characters in the flashbacks seem like completely different persons. It's very unpleasant and less and less believable. The Jimmy Savile scandal is an important subject, but this film ultimately feels exploitative in its own way. Not sure if I want to finish it.
