Not a lot a happy in Happy Valley, but a of fantastic things. The writing is engaging, the performances are fantastic. Sarah Lancaster is just perfect in this role. A+ drama series filled with suspence.

In a period with no shortage of incredible dramatic performers, we have another one in Sarah Lancashire
This show deserves the BAFTA award for best drama. Sally Wainright's gritty , yet human feel has you engaged almost from the first moment. Its a typicallly British style, which builds on the suspense and ties together several story lines through the main character, Catherine Cawood, a police sargent dealing with her own family tragedy, as she negotiates life and crime within the police force of a small country town in West Yorshire. Watch it and you certainly won't be disappointed !!
This was a very intense show. It started off a little slow, but was always a very interesting world with interesting characters. I have seen a few British shows but it was nice to see something other than London and Cardiff for once. Recommend it for Drama, Thriller, Crime fans and fans of something other than the regular cop shows. 7.8/10.
Really good show, nice to see a tough policewoman!
Also I realised I´d been to that town, I had to take my Sha Pei to a vet for an eye op and the best vet in the UK
has an office there. Pip someone...anyway I was sitting thinking "I know that place" then I remembered 18 years ago!
