Superb

Brilliant insight into the bands and the people involved. Maxine establishes herself as a five star narrator. If you love Joy Division you’ll gain a real insight into this much loved band. Loved every episode.

Brilliant

Fantastic to hear & be reminded about their journey as (two) bands. Loved it!

Does not live up to expectation

There are interesting aspects about the early days of the band and label but (a) the music generally reinforced why, despite the odd good song, Joy Division were overrated, and (b) Maxine Peake unfortunately comes across as a gushy teenager on her first assignment. A more objective, less hagiographic treatment would have served better.
