This is my 1st review on here. I didn't write one for Chernobyl although I have given it 10/10 and I think of it as the best documentary of all times. As Salisbury Poisonings is not made to the same spectacular scale I am awarding it 9/10. Chernobyl didn't need another hundredth review. But I feel Salisbury does, especially after having been aired only recently and not having accumulated a high number of reviews yet. Smaller budget. Shorter too, with only 3 episodes. And yet what really grabbed my attention is how good the casting was, with actors emulating the characters really well. I give it 10/10 for the excellent delivery by the actors. And not just one person. They all had a role to play. And delivered they did. The gestures, the looks. Conveying strong emotions, showing ordinary people caught in the whirlwind and going through hard time. I give it 10/ 10 for showing the story not only on the local level but also at the national one, with the coverage of the government communications and international implications. (however small they were) I give it 10/10 for showing how these events affected the people directly involved, their families, the local community and businesses. I remember quite vividly the timeline and was feeling very sorry for all the people living in and around Salisbury. I give it 5/10 for very minimal coverage of the Russian agents role in the attempted killings of Sergei Scripal and his daughter and minimal notion of who Scripal was. I suppose the reason for this was so that the documentary is not accused of being politicised. I give it 10/10 for showing the inner workings of the various departments and agencies and showing realistic aspects of containment and costs involved. If I was to nominate for an award one person involved in making this film, this would be Anne Marie Duff. For a non Hollywood, no glamour, but a normal, life like portrayal of Tracy Daszkiewicz. She carries the documentary with lightness and strength. I hope the series will win recognition for a job well done.
