Love this show, albeit I’ve probably come to the party a bit late. Imagine you’re on a train platform and you see a doppelganger of yourself, but before you can speak to them they throw themselves under a train. You pick up the bag they’ve left behind, in order to find out who they are. You discover they are considerably richer than you, and so you adopt their identity… only to take on all the problems in their life too. It’s too late to back out, cos a bunch of baddies are now after you and simply not gonna believed your farfetched take of identity swapping. And then you find out you have other doppelgangers! That’s the scenario of Orphan Black, a very clever scifi fantasy series. Each episode is beautifully crafted and all the characters are so well rounded that you care for all of them, even when they are in conflict with each other. A sensational watch! 9.5 out of 10… I’m not giving 10 out of 10 in case series 2 is even better.
this month I have mainly been watching Orphan Black
