Apple TV+’s new show Servant centres on Dorothy and Sean, a wealthy couple with exhaustingly successful lives: she is a local newscaster with family money, he is a chef to the rich and famous. They dwell in a sumptuous if slightly gothic Manhattan townhouse with their new baby whom they have named, because we live in a morally derelict age with no sense of decorum or shame any more, Jericho.
Or Do They? For this is a supernatural thriller, created by Tony Basgallop and executive produced by M Night Shyamalan, so nothing can be straightforward. Or quick. Or unbeautifully framed. But we’ll get to that.
