    Anchor Me has a depth and resonance surprising in mainstream ITV drama.

    Independent On Sunday

    Iain Glen has a deft touch: he brings a sensitive complexity to this searing, sentimental and carefully considered tale of a family unravelling. The flashbacks are beautifully handled and with a script so tight it’s almost workable without the pictures.

    The Daily Telegraph

    The ubiquitous Iain Glen stars in this two-part drama. It’s an excellently well performed ensemble piece and the portrait of family life with it’s and resentments is very convincing.

    Time Out

    Ashley Pharoah’s script is believable and finely acted by all, as ghosts are laid to rest, passions rekindled and lessons finally learnt.
