  • [While the] two-hour premiere suffers from the tempo flaw that marred the show, the pace does quicken with the introduction of the American Judas, Benedict Arnold. [17/24 Apr 2015, p.104] Show More

  • There are some nice elements, such as the infatuation of British officer Maj. Hewlett (Burn Gorman) with Anna (Heather Lind), who is working with Woodhull as part of the spy ring. There’s also the return of the venomous Simcoe (Samuel Roukin), so evil that he practically hisses out his dialogue. The pieces, however, never quite add up to anything with enough cohesion or narrative flow. Show More

  • It's quite a story, but the pilot for Turn takes a long time to get going, and isn't all that compelling. Show More
