Season 1 Episode 3
27 May 2018 | by caiolinnSee all my reviews

I liked the first episode quite a lot, an interesting look a drug addiction but the 2nd episode was fragmented and too long. It gave very important back story to Patrick's early life, but some how was not that interesting. However, the third episode was much better and even better than the first episode, perhaps that because he's started his journey to redemption and facing his horrid past. The party was interesting with Princess Margaret attending. I'm not a fan of the aristocracy in the least, in fact the whole British class system I find horrendous and this episode showed some of the ugly side to those pompous asses. In found Benedict Cumberbach's performance gripping and quite moving. I shall continue watching.
