The BBC proved once again that 2018 has really been the year for drama, Mrs Wilson follows the likes of Killing Eve, The Bodyguard, with another exceptional series, Mrs Wilson. A show that must have been incredibly close to home for the lead actress, Ruth Wilson.

The story was fascinating, the way it was told was captivating, how on Earth could someone you love so much, hide so much? Fascinating, it just gets deeper and more complicated with each scene.

The performances all round are excellent, but the problem is, that when Ruth Wilson is on screen, she's just so captivating, that it's hard to focus on anything else, she really is that good.

Superbly acted, fantastic production values, and a captivating story, if I had one criticism, I would say I think it could have been done over two parts.

Excellent. 8/10

This BBC drama is centred on Alison Wilson, a woman who lives happily with her husband and their two sons... until her husband dies and a man comes to the door stating that he is the son of Mr Wilson's wife... who he never divorced despite what he told Alison. Alison is determined to discover the truth and as she investigates she learns more of her late husband's secrets. Intertwined with her investigations we see flashbacks of how she met during the war when both worked for the Intelligence Services... something that explains many of his lies.

This is one of those dramas that would seem somewhat far-fetched if it wasn't based on real events. That reality is emphasised by the fact that the actress portraying Alison Wilson is none other than her actual granddaughter Ruth Wilson. She does a really good job in the role and is ably supported by a quality cast that includes Keeley Hawes, Iain Glen, Fiona Shaw and Ian McElhinney. The story is populated with interesting characters and provides some impressive twists and surprises. Overall I'd definitely recommend this drama; the story may be personal in nature but it feels like a mystery or spy thriller at times.

I'm a sucker for anything Ruth Wilson is in since I first saw her in Luther. Amazing.

She's the centerpiece of "Mrs. Wilson" too. The whole thing was pretty good with good acting by all and good production quality. The fact that it was based on a true story is cool. It felt a little rushed towards the end and might have benefitted from another episode somewhere in the middle. If the concept looks good to you give it a spin.

Usually on here critical of some rubbish I've seen. This though was a wonderful, true story that is quite unbelievable. The acting performances were spot on and the script beautifully delivered. Ruth Wilson who really annoyed me in The Affair I have to say puts on breath taking performance playing the part of her Grand mother. I can't think of anyone who wouldn't be blow away by this short series.

Worth watching for the amazingly talented and beautiful Ruth Wilson at her very best! This is such an almighty tall tale, when I saw it was a "true story" or "based on real events" I had my doubts! And then just before I watched episode 3 I learnt it was Ruth's actual grandmother she was playing! You see every kind of emotion on her face as her character learns more about the man she loved, and how blurred her reality actually was.

Ruth is AMAZE - she deserves a BAFTA or something! She totally outshines Keeley Hawes -who, it is rumoured, is the favourite, for all of her 8 mins in the Bodyguard. But like, whatever.

I thoroughly enjoyed this drama. I thought it was well paced and very interesting. Three episodes to tell this true story was just right or would have dragged on. Ruth Wilson was superb . Must've been so tough playing her fathers mum lol . Incredible story . The closing scene was so emotional and score was amazing . Very moving .Well worth a watch .

This is a very interesting limited TV series inspired by the life of lead actor/producer, Ruth Wilson's grandmother. Well told and well performed with intricate twists and turns, all the more fascinating as you are always aware that it must have been bizarre for Ruth Wilson to walk in her grandmother's shoes. Fantastic cast. I give this series an 8.5 (captivating) out of 10. {BioPic Mystery}

Thoroughly enjoyed it, Ruth Wilson was excellent and it bought back the feel of the 60's. Looking forward to the next episodes.

Ruth Wilson does an incredible job here portraying her own grandmother. The love, betrayal, loyalty, sadness and hope that Alison Wilson felt was clearly evident throughout. A story so bizarre and shocking it had to be true. A fabulous ending demonstrating that good can come from lies- with all the family meeting. He may have been a serial bigamist but without him, none of these people would exist today. Thorughougly enjoyed this series and the performances by Ruth Wilson and Ian Glen (who seems to be playing deceitful dead husbands a lot these days lol)

This was a quite brilliantly portrayed drama by the BBC. Everything was in play from the claustrophobic morality of post war Britain, the ultimate consequence of war on individual lives and the life choices made by circumstance that had ramifications on an entire family.

The acting was nuanced showing the conflicted emotions, just how would someone react to discovering they had been the third victim of a serial bigamist. The script was tight and well structured and tried desperately to arrive at a moral standpoint.

The problem with this drama lies with its ultimate truths, there were three women who had been lied to for decades, there were no less that six illegitimate children who were inadequately provided for, and three tawdry affairs undertaken without a care for the devastation this would leave when the truth came out.

There could be no redemptive conclusion to this sorry tale and suggesting that some good may come out of such personal tragedy by way of gaining an extended family doesn't cut it.

This distasteful story was very memorable and moving but just could not rise above its subject matter.

Ruth Wilson is a wonderful actress and made this watchable but in the end I found it disappointing. But it's a true story so not really fair to criticise. Not the most exciting of dramas.

An incredible story that, if it was fiction, would probably be accused of being too far fetched. There's an incredible iron, though, in the fact that, ultimately, the woman who found out here entire life was a lie, ended up swallowing the biggest lie of all - that there is some supernatural being who will make everything all right. I suspect that the writers didn't intend that meaning, but as a devout atheist it makes the drama even more poignant and powerful than the 'God fixes everything' mythological ending that I suspect was originally intended!

Ruth Wilson is a great actor. Here she is at her best.

All the critiques expressed by others here are valid. This is a very frustrating mini-series. The producers work hard to keep a complex story coherent and flowing, but they do fail from time to time. There are a few challenges to credibility and quite a few plot holes. But the story is based on a family's real secrets and their real experience over almost a century after WWI, so who should be surprised.

The cruel harms of the great capitalist disaster that was WWI resonate through the lives of so many millions of families throughout the world.

The story is carried forward brilliantly by the main character Alison Wilson (Ruth Wilson), in silent partnership with the almost unseen protagonist, Alex Wilson (Iain Glen). They are supported by an excellent production team, cast and crew.

At the end of part 3 we learn that Her Majesty's UK Government still refuses to release the files they hold on Alex Wilson. He remains a mystery. We know he served the King in France in WWI, in India in the 1930's and in Egypt during WWII, but despite this, was cashiered out of the Civil Service in 1942 for 'theft'. We never really learn why. But we do learn about the collateral damage to three fine women and their four sons, who loved him.

I was distracted by plot holes as the series rolled along. Alex published 23 popular books but had no income? Did Alex really bludge off Alison for 22 years? Why wasn't Alison curious that, after decades of civil service, Alex had no pension? Why was there no effort to publish Alex's final book? Seems Alex published books after his break up with Dorothy so why was their son not aware?

But all is forgiven. A great yarn well told. All credit to Ruth Wilson. And then Susan Jameson shows up as Matron to seal the deal - wow! I'm hooked.

Grateful thanks to Masterpiece & BBC one. I was privileged to watch this on free to air TV. Please distribute widely. It's a jem.

What a fantastic story of intrigue, love, deceit and ultimately continuation of life despite it all. Loved every minute

This is 3 hours of tv in all and is worthwhile, with period detail, a twisting plot, an unknowable main character and plenty of drama along the way. It remains unresolved in a way but no scope for more.

The drama, a BBC one strives for a narrative and historical accuracy, if the main people are right then there is conspiracy and duplicity at the heart of the state. The state here is represented by Coleman, billed as head of MI6 in world war two. This character is played by a woman when in reality the person was male. The actress dresses in a Smiley-like overcoat, smokes in most scenes but no BBC if you strive for accuracy, you don't twist the facts, however PC this makes your output. It demeans the story too as Imo, Mrs Wilsons dealing with male establishment figures would have been even more difficult.

I was at the edge of my seat, wanted to know who was telling the truth unfortunately it was left to make your own conclusions.

Also, he had written 21 novels what happen to the money he made from them. I enjoyed the series but was left with more questions then answers.

If this guy had been a bricklayer with four wives he would just be a dick. Somehow when the same behaviour is from an.intellectual its all very novel worthy.

Unfortunatly what could have been agreat mini-serie was, in my opinion, a disappointment. Great cast, good acting. The story was sometimes hard to follow, the caracters were not well definied. What was so exeptional about this story that was worth to make a serie about it ?

A truely great and intriging story, well played and produced. I learned afterwards that Ruth Wilson plays the role of her grandmother. Wow. Mindblowing. How weird must that have been... Anyway, this mini seried is well worth watching. It has love, betrayel, hate, double lives, relation problems, spies, ww2 and a nice view on life in the decades it plays in (ww2 and early sixties)

I didn't have high expectations of this, but I ended up watching all 3 episodes on 1 night - it was so enthralling!! Fascinating true story, well acted and produced, a must see!

Like many of these mini series set in wartime or post wartime era you see people smoking filter tip cigarettes, which were not introduced until the 1950's. Just a small thing but the researchers could get it better, or not have the characters smoking at all, if necessary.

Very leisurely paced and with not much of a payoff.

This could quite easily have been compressed into 90 minutes. I struggled through the first two episodes, then enjoyed the third episode, but found the experience on the whole to have been unrewarding.

I struggled to care much for the character played by Ruth Wilson. Though she had clearly suffered, I felt some of the other characters -- who had also suffered -- were far more sympathetic.

I was often asking myself: "When is this scene supposed to be taking place?" Ruth Wilson never seemed to age much (over a period of more than 20 years) and it was difficult to differentiate between Britain in the 40s, 50s and 60s (and I wasn't sure what year "present day" was supposed to be). It would have helped if they'd put the year up on screen.

I titled this review "Brideshead Revisited", because (Lord Marchmain's) conversion to Catholicism seemed to be a strong theme in the earlier work. One reading of this later work is that, having had her faith in people tested, Mrs Wilson (as played by Ruth Wilson) is drawn to having her wavering faith in god tested too.

I struggled to watch this series.Plenty of period feel and attention to detail but apart from Keeley Hawes part,I found the acting dire and the writing atrocious.Far too much lingering on Ruth Wilson's one note expression of anguish.The characters were mostly not fully explored and I honestly don't know why anybody thought this story was of any interest except to the people concerned.Yes,she is playing her real Grandmother and it's a true story but so what ? Why do we care ? I didn't but you might. Three,one hour eps that seemed to last a lifetime imo.
