Minis­eries: Na­tional Trea­sure

Isis Town and Country - - Life | TV Guide -

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.
