THere’s a new English police series on Netflix which got some rave reviews this week. Called Happy Valley, it’s the story of an older woman who is the sergeant in a provincial police station in a town in Yorkshire. The title is ironic, but the drama mixes the ups and downs of family life and the dark side of the town in a pretty compelling way. Nothing radically new, but very nicely acted, written and done.
And the theme song is Jake Bugg from a few years ago. Timeless as folk.
