Review: The Night Watch

So tonight I watched the one off BBC 2 drama 'The Night Watch' which is set in London in 1947 with flashs back to 1944 and 1941. It tells the story of the entangled lives and love lives of the four main characters; these being Kay (played by Anna Maxwell Martin), Helen (played by Claire Foy), Viv (played by Jodie Whittaker) and Duncan (played by Harry Treadaway).

Duncan and Robert



 I thought the acting was very good and what you would expect from an all star cast that have all acted in WWII/historric dramas before. Some of the other cast members include: JJ Field, Claudie Blakely and Liam Garrigan.

The costumes as always in BBC historic dramas were amazing and left me with lots of inspiration for future outfit purchases (not neccessarily a good thing mind :p)

Overall I would highly recommend this programme as the end definitely left me wanting more, it has all the ingredients of a great drama, love, lose and suspense. The only other thing I will say is that if you are looking for a light hearted, fun filled drama this is probably not for you.

So hope you all enjoy watching it to and it is now available on BBC iPlayer.
