Sally Wainwright’s Masterpiece Drama HAPPY VALLEY Premieres to Audience and Critical Acclaim


All at The Agency would like to pass on our sincere congratulations to Sally Wainwright and all who worked on her phenomenal, multi-BAFTA-winning series HAPPY VALLEY (Lookout Point/BBC/AMC), which landed to huge critical and audience acclaim when it premiered on New Year’s Day this year.

Hailed as one of the greatest TV dramas of the 21st, the first episode of the third and final series of the show returned to our screens after a near seven year hiatus to an incredible reception:

★★★★★- “TV drama doesn’t get much better than this”, writes Anita Singh in The Telegraph

★★★★★- “Sally Wainwright’s Masterwork is back”, writes Lucy Mangan in The Guardian

★★★★★- “Mesmerising”, says Carol Midgley in The Times

★★★★★- Christopher Stevens in The Daily Mail comments that Sally Wainwright’s “beautifully taut script” is “without a word wasted”.

The complete first and second series of HAPPY VALLEY are available to watch on BBC iPlayer

Sally Wainwright is represented by Bethan Evans and Ian Benson at The Agency (London) Ltd.
