“Wow, #Sherwood is great – layered, thoughtful, mature, and such a great cast. The best I’ve seen in years,” said another.

A third viewer commented that the show is “brilliantly acted, thrilling and full of dread”.

“Great first episode of #Sherwood and the cast is a who’s who of the cream of British talent, should be some good weeks!” added a fourth fan.

Another viewer praised the show’s impressive cast and also pointed out Notts County’s mistake in the first episode.

Thriller BBC started airing on Monday this week. It took first place at 9:00 pm and a second episode followed on Tuesday.

The six-part series follows the police in a small town in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, tasked with solving two unexpected and seemingly unrelated murders. The deaths shock the local community and soon lead to a large-scale manhunt.

The thriller’s large cast includes David Morrissey, who leads the series as Chief Detective Superintendent Ian St. Clair. Viewers may recognize him from Doctor Who and The Walking Dead.

“Good start; almost anyone I’ve seen so far could lead the cast, but I was thrilled to see David Morrissey. #Sherwood,” one fan tweeted in support of the actor’s casting.

Ghosts actor Robert Glenister plays Detective Inspector Kevin Salisbury of the Metropolitan Police, and he leads the investigation alongside Ian St. Clair. However, the couple must put aside years of rivalry in order to uncover the truth behind these deaths.

Joining the detective duo on screen are The Crown’s Lesley Ann Manville, Utopia star Adil Akhtar, New Stunts alum Alan Armstrong and Lewis actress Claire Holman.

Wow, that’s a lot of British talent, but that’s not all.

Rounding out Sherwood’s star cast are the two main characters from Downton Abbey: Joanne Froggatt and Kevin Doyle. The duo was last seen on the big screen in Downton Abbey: A New Era.

The plot of “Sherwood” is a fictional retelling of a true story written by award-winning playwright and playwright James Graham.

“It means the whole world has the opportunity to bring the voices of the community I grew up in to BBC One,” said James.

He continued: “There is so much talk about the divisions and difficulties in these red-walled cities, but they are not always understood.

“I’m honored to be able to tell a fictional story about a very real injury, but with the humor, heart and resilience of the people I know and love there.”

  • Sherwood continues tonight at 9pm on BBC One.
