Tense and fast moving miniseries. Strong, emotional characters. Beautiful "unhappy" Valley. Very good acting.

Very compelling show. BBC quality and excellent acting. You may want to use subtitles as this is not posh English. Happy Valley may be the least happy place on the planet. The mother of a rape victim gives up her family, her prestigious job, and her community standing to raise the child of that rape following her daughter's suicide. (Not a spoiler as you learn that in the first 15 minutes.) Granny and her drug addict sister try to raise the boy while the ex-husband grandfather and the uncle sit back and judge her and ignore her need for help and emotional support. A police drama with a kidnapping, a drug operation, and a cop killed in the line of duty. Well worth your time.

I just struggled through an episode of the "Scott & Bailey" series and it served only to show, by contrast, how greatly superior "Happy Valley" is. Sarah Lancashire has developed into a truly great actress.

Very entertaining police drama set in Yorkshire, U.K. Excellent cast led by Sarah Lancashire. Well drawn characters, but the plot was a little predictable.

Simply the best series I've watched in a VERY long time.

Great plot. Great direction. Great actors. BBC at its finest.
