Renowned for its graphic depiction of violence, the cast and crew of Channel 4’s recent thriller Utopia discuss the series in a new behind-the-scenes clip.
In many well-constructed thrillers, the pay-off to the resolutions and revelations of the plot are often enhanced by the sense that the answers were hiding in plain sight all along.
Five down, one to go. After weeks of physical and psychological torture, paranoia and mass murder, the fifth episode of Utopia begins with an intense opening and doesn’t let up from there.
The central characters in Utopia are on a journey, and while I fear they may not like the end destination, this week’s episode is a fascinating study of their descent into darkness.
This week’s episode presents a relentless series of character assassinations, both literally and figuratively speaking.
At the end of last week’s episode there was one question on everyone’s lips: Who is Jessica Hyde? This week’s instalment of Utopia goes some way towards answering that question but also raises several others.
It’s ironic that for a series titled Utopia, the characters that inhabit its colourful labyrinth of mysteries and murder are as far from paradise as it’s possible to be.
