DVD & Blu-ray review: Utopia: Series 1 (18)

Marc Munden & Alex Garcia DVD/Blu-ray (300mins)

Neil Maskell is horribly convincing as Arby, a psychotic working for shadowy organisation The Network.

Arby asks various confused innocents: “Where's Jessica Hyde?” before doing unspeakable things (eye gouging, pushing people off balconies, massacres, that sort of thing). He's after four strangers, who know too much about the graphic novel “The Utopia Experiments”. A gruesome, gripping conspiracy thriller from Channel 4, with dollops of dark humour.
