Fierce bierce ,

Excellent!

I don’t know if I can give a full review of this without spoiling but I’ll just say it was literally the best fiction podcast story I’ve listened to so far. The worst part about it was that it ended!

Gilbercrat ,

Tedious

I’ve listened to tons and tons of audio dramas, and I’m sorry, this one is overhyped. The lead character is obnoxious. The constant damsel in distress screams were painful. But the ending of s1 was pretty unexpected. That said, the episodes could have been half as long. A lot of filler.

Miz Luv ,

Superb.

So compelling. So well produced and acted, as I’ve come to expect from nearly all of BBC’s scripted audio. I really, really enjoyed this one. Only sorry that it, like all good things, had to come to an end.
