"This clever iteration...is set in present-day London,Strands of #metoo are interwoven into five neat 20-minute episodes, as are atmospheric musical interludes by Imelda May. Excellent performances too from Rebecca Night, Lacey Turner, Macadie Amoroso, Richard Lintern and Cathy Tyson."

"Gaslight is a decent retelling of the play by Patrick Hamilton...It’s a clever tale of murder and greed that flies by in an instant even with the additional bonus scenes. There’s also a decent sound track and title song by Imelda May."
