Sherwood, new bbc1 drama

I didn't want to put a trailer due to spoilers but this is British drama at its best, drawing on historical differences in communities going back to the miners strikes but top writing, incredibly well paced and I can't remember seeing a better British ensemble cast on TV, 1st episode was stunning I thought and if they were all loaded to the iplayer I would definitely have binge watched them all WWAW

another couple of brilliant episodes, I guess being working class and growing up in Thatchers Britain and all that entailed and remembering a lot of this and recognising the community spirit that was ripped apart it does touch a nerve with me. melding that and a fascinating murder story was always going to be a winner but the cast is just staggering and all nail their part as far as I'm concerned

Looking for something to put on my tablet for a long flight.
I'm guessing this fits the bill by the way your all enthused by it.

Agree mbilko, it's really good.  I'm sure the writer has lots of knowledge of those times and I'm just as sure some of the wounds opened up 30+ years ago are as raw now as then - whole communities, families and friends torn apart with decisions made at the time.  Really something I'd never really considered to be the case so long after.
She knew what she wanted and was literally prepared to do anything to get it.  Yup, no such thing as society, she made sure of that time and time again..
