Alan Bennett's Talking Heads: Series 1 (2020)
Critic Consensus: A welcome revival that makes good use of its talent, Alan Bennett's Talking Heads is a moving collection of stories that ring particularly true in turbulent times.

Imelda Staunton glitters with equal fury, but her anger runs hot rather than ice cold.
It ought to have meant tears before bedtime, but Bennett gave us laugh out loud writing besides. That, plus superb performances, make Talking Heads a must see once more.
The one I particularly hated was one of the two new ones he has written, 'An Ordinary Woman'.
They are all deeply about loneliness and isolation in a way that's often hard to make gripping, but has never felt more urgent.
Their stories are full of surprises and can be quietly devastating, and the episodes are like jewel boxes that gradually open up to reveal the riches within.
Filmed during lockdown with a fresh cast, they're as masterful, diamond-cut, powerful and painful as they ever were. Plus, Bennett has written two new ones, so that's joy unconfined for fun-loving people like us.
