Trivia

During an interview on NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday, interviewer Scott Simon remarked to Hugh Grant that before making this movie, Grant and Ben Whishaw had also just worked together on Paddington 2 (2017), and Grant replied, "Well, I mean, it is weird that I have in effect spent the last three years trying to either kill or have sex with Ben Whishaw in one way or another."

One of the best things I've seen in a long while.
30 June 2018 | by bobou-513-708245See all my reviews

Not sure how this ended up on Amazon Prime, as I usually don't expect this level of quality for free, but this three part series is truly excellent. Great cast, great story, great writing. Make sure you set enough time to watch all three episodes in one sitting, because you're not going to want to put this one down.
