Episodes 1 and 2 - absolutely stunning.
Episodes 3 and 4 - not quite as amazing but still very good
Episodes 5 and 6 - getting a bit too convoluted and inconsistent. It seems that the desire to avoid a cliche ending was partly to blame for the finale feeling like a bit of a damp squid.
Random thought: Romola Garai looked and sounded astonishingly like Drew Barrymore's character Josie Geller in the movie Never Been Kissed. (It isn't just me... even my wife agreed with me!! :-D)
Still time to watch it on BBC iPlayer (I think it's available until 19th September)
