Utopia: Series One Review

Image for Utopia: Series One

Not such an ideal place after all


A disparate group of people search for a comic book created by a madman, whose long-range plans for humanity are being implemented by a sinister conspiracy. This six-part TV serial plays best as a long film, with the twists building to a complex finish. It has a bright, assured widescreen look, and a fine set of damaged characters on a collision course.
