THE LONG SONG - SEASON ONE There is so much that’s good, almost great, about The Long Song, not least a fabulously charismatic turn from rising star Tamara Lawrance, that it felt odd to come away from the opening episode of its three-night run feeling rather tuned out. There’s something about this adaptation of Andrea Levy’s novel about the final throes of slavery in Jamaica that plays off key. For example, none of the plantation ruling class is presented as anything other than a caricature and reducing the plantation owners and their henchmen to outlandish and brutish cartoon-like villains. For that reason, I can give 'The Long Song' nothing more than four stars.
