    White Heat is a bold, fabulously written (if at times overbearing) chronicle of the political and social changes which sweep through Britain beginning in the mid-1960s.

    After only one episode it's clear that the more we learn about each of them, the more we will want to know.

    As an avid fan of the 10pm Wednesday BBCAmerican timeslot - aka "Dramaville" - I was fired up for White Heat. But the first episode justAs an avid fan of the 10pm Wednesday BBCAmerican timeslot - aka "Dramaville" - I was fired up for White Heat. But the first episode just lacked. Lacked passion, enthusiasm, and anything compelling to make me stick around. The main character - during the "look-back" sequences - is mildly interesting, but her older incarnation is completely devoid of personality. The "player" guy in the flat is not nearly charismatic enough to carry his role. And the foreign-born student is sympathetic, but not enough of his story was planted in the first episode to make one interested. This is the mistake that many dramas make. If you can't interest the viewer out of the gates, you're going to lose him. Full Review »
