The BBC series starring Daisy Haggard as a 30-something British woman named Miri who has just been released from an 18-year prison sentence for murder is the kind of show that is so special, "its richness is best experienced altogether as an immersive wave of emotion," says Allison Keene. She adds: "What really propels the series is simply a desire to see Miri navigate this 'new' world and thrive. The show isn’t interested in her interacting with modern technology or understanding how the last two decades have shaped politics or global conflict. It’s very much focused on Miri simply allowing herself to be free, and learning what it means to live. It’s not made up of big, triumphant moments and crowds of cheering townsfolk. People mistrust her, many just don’t like her, things are frustrating and irritating and embarrassing. But she continues to move forward, to embrace every moment of it, because there’s finally cause for hope. And Miri, in her boundless optimism, clings as tightly to that as her beeping Tamagotchi."
