'Incredible' Netflix drama series is so good people are binge-watching it in one night
David Tennant and Stanley Tucci in a thriller? Yes please
People have been raving over new BBC thriller-drama series Inside Man after it landed on Netflix ahead of the weekend.
The mini-series stars David Tennant as a priest and Stanley Tucci as a death row prisoner, and if that hasn't already got your attention then I'm not sure what will.
At just four episodes long, many have been bingeing the series in one night after it arrived on Netflix on Halloween.
And if you haven't got Netflix then fear not, it is also available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
The series synopsis reads: "A prisoner on death row in the US and a woman trapped in a cellar under an English vicarage, cross paths in the most unexpected way."
Along with starring Tennant and Tucci, the series was created by Steven Moffat, the man behind some of the most memorable (and scariest) Doctor Who episodes of recent years and Sherlock.
From Steven Moffat — the genre-shattering mind behind Sherlock & Dracula — comes a limited series about a prisoner on death row, a vicar in a quiet English town & a teacher trapped inside a cellar.

Many have been raving about Inside Man online, with some labelling it "absolutely brilliant" and "beautifully crafted."
One person said it was so good that they had stayed up "5 hours before I have to wake up" because it had them hooked.

Inside Man is a great show. It’s beatifylly crafted, directed, acted, music is used amazingly. I just can’t understand how anybody could dislike it. If you haven’t watched it, I encourage it so highly. Stars David Tennant, on BBC iPlayer and only 4 episodes. Heart is still racing

Inside Man on Netflix is absolutely brilliant. One of the best miniseries I have seen in a very long time. pic.twitter.com/xKJ0FLk7Tt

Even the more negative reviews might have you intrigued, with the series being called "bonkers."
Another tweeted: "#InsideMan is the dumbest, most unrealistic ridiculousness I’ve ever seen lol There’s so many reasons none of that even had to happen. That being said it’s kinda entertaining lol."
BBC’s Inside Man is one bonkers series. I just binged all 4 episodes, and I don't know what to make out of it. One thing is for sure Stanley Tucci (He is so hot! Make that 2 things) and David Tennant's acting is top-class, as always. #InsideMan pic.twitter.com/Izl7goZXdy

And people still had nothing but praise for Tennant and Tucci's cast.
The cast of #InsideMan were excellent (especially David Tennant), but the script & plot were completely implausible; I could barely watch the last 20 minutes as it descended into carnage. It was 'The Emperor's New Clothes' all over again as far as the writing's concerned. ☹

So it sounds like no matter what, you certainly won't find this series boring, and that's got to make it worth a binge surely?
And anything with David Tennant in is already a winner if you ask me.
