A gripping TV series starring David Tennant that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats has finally been released on Netflix.
Boasting a handsome score of 88 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, it is fair to say that it has been well received by viewers.
The Guardian rated the series four out of five, saying it was 'far more solidly engineered' than the similarly highly rated and critically acclaimed Broadchurch, which Tennant also starred in.
The Independent also left a positive review, calling it 'gruelling, but hard to take your eyes off'.
Despite being known as a family man, police and those investigating search for a potential motive and uncover the truths behind the 'picture-perfect' Kendrick family.

Ex-Doctor Who star David Tennant has been highly praised for his performance in the series and stars alongside Cush Jumbo and Matthew McNulty, who play Mrs Kendrick's friend Jess and Police Sergeant Steve Campbell, respectively.
One user said: “F**king HELL Deadwater Fell is THE BEST THING I’ve watched in a LONG time!”
Another posted: “I want to rewatch Deadwater Fell. For me, one of the best David Tennant roles. That character is creepy.”
A third shared: “Deadwater Fell Is possibly the best show I’ve watched all year. What a mind f**k.”
That's a lot of praise.
Executive producer of the series Emma Kingsman-Lloyd revealed that she and writer Daisy Coulam were heavily inspired by true crime series while creating and developing the show.
"We’re both a little bit obsessed with true crime shows which is where the initial thought came from, because Daisy said that she wanted to write something that had the forensic detail of a true crime documentary show," Kingsman-Lloyd explained.
Coulam revealed to the Radio Times that it was the opening scene of the docu-series that made them want to recreate the feeling of going through a quiet house and knowing ‘this incredibly violent thing happened there’.
