Miniseries: National Treasure
THURSDAY, ABC, 8.30PM
With flawless performances from its three leads (Robbie Coltrane, Julie Walters and Andrea Riseborough, left), a harrowing ripped-from-the-Ye w tree-investigationheadlines storyline and some flat-out brilliant writing, this is arguably the best drama to come out of Britain this year. It all comes to a head tonight, with “national treasure” Paul (Coltrane) and his family in court for his trial for historic sex crimes. After three episodes of seeing how the allegations have affected the family, now his accusers come to the fore, and we understand that there will be no winners here, whatever the verdict.
