Critic Reviews for Care

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

I think it's something that's profoundly personal. It makes you think about the situation and how you would react if you were in that circumstance.

It is a spare, tight, moving piece of drama that should force us all to care - about who will look after us in our old age, who will look after them and who will fund it all. We're none of us getting any younger, you know.

For all the careful shaping of the narrative, it was not entirely possible to camouflage the flavour of a pulpit infomercial. But as has happened before with prime time drama, if Care proves an effective loudhailer it will have done its job.

It was beautifully observed and beautifully performed, but even though it's based on the experience of McGovern's co-writer, Gillian Juckes, there were moments that jarred.

The overall message, that we are nothing without communication, might be vital, but that doesn't make it easy to watch.

December 10, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's an unrelenting piece of drama, a battle with bureaucracy in which there is no particularly cheerful outcome. But for anyone who has dealt with the health service and questions of care for the elderly, it will ring true.
