Anyone watch the first episode of this on BBC2 last night?

Can't make my mind up about it, but will watch next week's.

We had it on, but it didn't capture my wholehearted attention so I was messing around with my laptop at the same time. I might give it another go next week, because I found the setting of the fifties quite interesting, but the plot wasn't compulsive enough for me.

It was hyped to death in the Radio Times.

Did you watch the second series.Helen? I thought it was superior to the first series

I very much enjoyed the development of the characters especially that of Hector (the excellent Dominic West)

I watched 4 episodes of it Becky and recorded the last 2 only to have our Sky+ box's hard drive fail a few days later so lost those recordings. I thought I'd downloaded them from iPlayer but there was a fault in those recordings so I don't know how it ended Sad

Like you I thought this series was better than the first. I'll have to watch out for any repeats.
