I stumbled upon this one while mindlessly surfing the internet, to be honest. Until now I don't know where exactly it was mentioned, but lazy Saturdays do that to people - they make them hunt for new TV series. Especially if you are me. I can be introverted
as fuck sometimes, so...
Anyway, I can't recall a case when BBC drama would disappoint me (most likely never), therefore I usually get
Here we have a girl who had been kidnapped 13 years ago which leaves us with 26-year old woman, escaping her prison under mysterious circumstances. The abductor is, naturally, still on the loose, yet this is not the biggest problem she is about to face. The world has changed, as well as her peers, and even family. As the story unfolds, you get the impression that her perverted abductor is in fact the closest she got to having human relationships during these last 13 years. Will she survive her new ordeal - freedom?
In short, it's tense and chilly enough to make forget to take a bite of that marzipan bar while you're watching and it's a game changer for me. What I mean is that you get involved and anticipate, rather then lay back, predict who's who and watch till the end just to confirm you were right.
It's 5-episode mini series, beloved BBC format, each lasts around 55 min and definitely worth wasting your precious Saturday time.
