Utopia

Series 1 - Episode 3

Radio Times
Review by:
David Butcher

There are times when Utopia gets too horrible, too painful to watch. Be warned: there are more lines crossed tonight and crossed again, as podgy baddie Arby sets about doing the Network’s dirty work, initially at a primary school. Yes, shooting at a primary school (albeit off-screen and out of sight) — and it gets worse from there. When scenes are this nasty, we stop being involved in the story because we’re so busy cringing. Which is a shame, because at its best Utopia is riveting, beautifully shot and very funny, too.

About this programme

3/6. Grant and the gang feel the full force of the Network's power when he's framed for a shocking crime. With nowhere else to turn, they are forced to make a new ally - but can she really be trusted? Thriller, starring Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Alexandra Roach, Adeel Akhtar, Paul Higgins and Geraldine James.
