The Split

British writer Abi Morgan (Shame, Suffragette), has created classy, escapist television at its finest. Rife with flirtation, betrayal, and full-blow infidelity (and that’s before we even get to the clients), the Defoe family make for a riveting, and rather glamorous watch, grounded by a finely-wrought performance from British lead actress Nicola Walker (Spooks).
