Sherwood: Season 1 | Reviews

This catch-the-killer thriller makes room for a larger, excellently executed exploration into small-town community trauma stretching back to the Thatcher era. AAA acting all-round with many plot turns to keep you wondering where it's all going—and where to goes is superb.
