Mini TV Review – Quiz

This week, I have been watching Quiz on ITV; and it was pretty good! Directed by Stephen Frears, and starring Matthew Macfadyen, Sian Clifford, and Michael Sheen, Quiz is a three part drama series based on the play of the same name by James Graham; which in turn is based on the coughing scandal on the tv quiz show; Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. The show works well at decrypting the events that took place and how they were viewed by those affected and the wider population. The show whilst acting as a breakdown of the events does not though come up with a definitive answer as to what happened, exploring how Major Charles Ingram and his wife to this day continue to appeal to over turn the verdict. This format of drama really works well as it really comes down to the viewer to decide what they think really happened. The show is acted brilliantly with special mention for Michael Sheen for his outstanding performance of Chris Tarrant. It’s fascinating, entertaining, and in some spots; very funny!
