Hugh Laurie never fails to exceed expectations
26 October 2016 | by (Perth) – See all my reviews

As with many readers, I have grown up with Hugh Laurie's acting career and can barely fault any of his projects, This is no exception.

The writing of this series is impeccable and Hugh has once again risen to the occasion. When one considers the variety of acting he has undertaken over his illustrious career, one can only marvel at his expertise in the acting profession.

This programme has sown the seed that it will grow into a massive hit and HL deserves every accolade in leading it to a well deserved success.

Enjoy!
