The Sister – Season 1 – Episode 1 - Online ENGLISH
The Sister (TV Series) - Intro
The Sister is a British psychological thriller directed by Niall MacCormick and adapted by Neil Cross from his own novel Burial. The four-part series stars Russell Tovey, Bertie Carvel, Amrita Acharia and Nina Toussaint-White and was first broadcast on ITV from 26 to 29 October 2020. It was released as a Hulu original in 2021. The original title was Because the Night.
The series has received generally positive reviews from critics. Lucy Mangan of The Guardian described the drama as “a supernaturally-tinged dose of nail-bitery, doled out in suspenseful chunks”. She praised the acting of lead Russell Tovey, whose portrayal of an “Everyman, suffering as an essentially good person trapped in a worsening hell not of his own making” made the viewing “absolutely agonising” and his depiction of guilt “genuinely moving”.
She considered the supernatural element “well-handled, even if I wish the connection between ghosts et al and our internal but very real horrors had been more fully explored rather than merely hinted at.” Sean O’Grady of The Independent thought that, although the drama is filmed in “horror-movie cliche” of “dark, rainy nights in shadowy woods with ghoulish dialogue” that made it “ideal for near-Halloween viewing”, the “strength of the cast and the very clever, subtle way” Neil Cross told the story saved it from being risible, and Cross had achieved the aim of making “the viewers sleep with the lights on”.
