Holy shit! ITV Hub has historically been a seething cesspool of tedium, however this 3-part dramatisation of the scandal of “The Coughing Major” on UK breakout gameshow Who Wants To Be A Millionaire was surprisingly captivating television!  A little laborious to start, but it drew us in with its portrayal of a “special” subcommunity within middle-England – the quiz obsessives… and the jumped-up egos that permeate a scene like that.  I’d heard Michael Sheen’s portrayal of Chris Tarrant described as “eerie”, and upon his initial screen appearance I thought they’d really missed the mark on this one. However as it continued you lost track of how engrossing it was, and you realised the spell was cast!  Just great. 👍👍
