First to point out, the cast is amazing. But the performances, i think there is still some untouched potential than shown. In some scenes, they felt like extras, meaningless, not believable. Maybe it was intention, that often the camera felt like return to the 90s bad cop dramas from the U.K.
What I liked
Tom Hollander's Corky and Olivia Colman, both great acting and my favorite characters in the series.
The interaction between Laurie and Hiddleston. As these two were carrying the main plot.
What I didn't liked
plot twists couldn't be more obvious
Character motivations did not seem to matter that much when it comes to the complete picture
Overall, worth watching. Worth watching again for some reason? Probably not.
