There are some truely outstanding drama series's in Britain... Sherlock, Waterloo Road, Silk etc... which means that to bring another drama, up to that standard, in to the market is VERY hard. However, this drama has done it. Blackout, a mix of emotional upholding, tension and dramatic action is one of the best new drama's I have seen in the last few years. The storyline is well written to intrigue and keep the audience wanting more.
The excellent cast also brings this story alive - amazing performances by actors such as Christopher Eccleston and Andrew Scott make this drama feel very realistic - and therefore make you a lot more interested and intrigued in how the story is going to develop and what is going to happen to these charecters. The plot itself, is very well thought through and provides the audience with just enough twist and turns to fufill across the series. The plot is very good at getting the audience 'pulled in' and making them become connected to these charecters.
A great peice of drama, definatly a reccomended one to watch! :D
