After trying to avoid all the spoilers on Twitter I finally binge watched Sky Atlantic’s Save Me yesterday and wow I loved it. Everything you needed in a great drama/thriller was there. Fantastic cast most notably Lennie James (Nelly) and Suranne Jones (Claire), great storyline – I found it to be full of grit and every parents worst nightmare.
Now I never want to spoil anything for those who haven’t watched (definitely get it downloaded and do so!) but the basic premise is that Nelly and Claire had a baby of which Nelly hasn’t been involved with and Jody is now a teenager and she’s gone missing. This is where the story begins and as we delve into the story it we learn more about Nelly and the people in his live. Definitely shows how a community pulls together in difficult circumstances but also how easily they can break apart.
Written and created by Lennie James (Nelly) and directed by Nick Murphy, production by World Productions (Line of Duty) this is a fantastic Sky Original Production and the news that a follow on season is also happening has very much been welcomed by those that have loved this as much as I did.
Another show I have been thoroughly enjoying is over on Universal Channel. With the final episode of this 6 part mystery drama airing tomorrow night, The Disappearance has been just as gripping. This Canadian drama originally started life as French project but then scripts were changed to English and The Disappearance was born. Boy am I thankful! I have been watching this week by week thanks to the good ole series link on Sky and have been dripped by every episode. It took till the end of Episode 3 before I began to seriously form an opinion on who dunnit and what’s really going on. I found this refreshing as usually I’ve guessed by the end of Episode 1.
What’s the story then I hear you ask? Anthony suddenly disappears on his 10th birthday treasure hunt. His family are devastated and immediately start searching for him however time progresses and the longer Anthony is missing we find the family are keeping secrets. As these secrets come to light do they hold the key to finding him? Hopefully it will all be wrapped up in the final episode tomorrow as I need to know. Have truly enjoyed this drama and again it has been great storyline and cast.
Have you watched either of these shows I’d love you to drop me a comment and let me know? If not I highly recommend you do.
Happy Viewing 📺❤️💋
