Is he a bad priest?

It doesn't look like it's on, Planet earth is on instead, maybe it's postponed

I was just coming to ask about it Light, it was definitely on my guide this morning when I was checking, but now says Planet Earth is on.

Is it set in Manchester? I read that it had been postponed due to last night's tragic events.

Not impressed at al so far. But the church is beautiful. St Francis Xavier, a Jesuit church in Liverpool.

I think it's quite good in a worthy BBC sort of way.

Is it going to be 6 episodes of unremitting misery? McGovern's Jude the Obscure? I'm not enough of a masochist to watch if so

cowgirlsareforever Tue 30-May-17 21:38:39

Sean Bean is a good priest.

Iamtheresurrection Tue 30-May-17 21:38:56

This is so depressing.

Toddlerteaplease Tue 30-May-17 21:39:00

Boring and predictable.

Saucery Tue 30-May-17 21:39:12

Haven't seen Anna Friel act this well in a long time though.

2rebecca Tue 30-May-17 21:44:10

I don't get why she's faffing on with her mother and playing games about her death whilst her kids are waiting for her. They look old enough to have walked home when she didn't show
