It’s a dull ti­tle for what turns out to be the most ex­cit­ing TV se­ries I’ve seen in years. It’s about the 1973 kid­nap­ping of J Paul Getty’s grand­son. I only started watch­ing be­cause, when we were young, my wife and I knew Pene­lope Kit­son, Getty’s mis­tress-in-chief – played in the se­ries by Anna Chan­cel­lor. Thirty min­utes into episode one, we were hooked. It’s a high-oc­tane roller­coaster, set at Sut­ton Place, near Guild­ford, the Ja­cobean man­sion where Getty lived, and in Italy, where the kid­nap­ping took place. The Ital­ian ac­tors are be­yond bril­liant and Don­ald Suther­land as the ex­tra­or­di­nary, charis­matic and ter­ri­fy­ing Getty de­serves ev­ery award go­ing. BBC iPlayer, 1 se­ries
