But it is also a subtle tale of the supernatural that avoids giving easy answers, playing instead on uncertainty, mystery and ambiguity.Writer Kris Mrksa says: "Requiem is the show I've always wanted to make. To be making it with the team at New Pictures, and for the BBC, a network that I so greatly admire, really is a dream come true."Willow Grylls and Charlie Pattinson, Executive Producers for New Pictures, say: "We are delighted to be given the opportunity to work with the brilliant writer Kris Mrska on this bold and distinctive series for BBC One.

A witty, intelligent and vulgar ensemble comedy about inefficient politicians, their lackeys, suck-ups, enemies and those who do the dirty work. If "The West Wing" were British, pessimistic and true.

Rating: 3/5

"I am poor and put upon," concedes Becky Sharp during the first episode of Vanity Fair, but it rapidly becomes clear that she intends to change this situation, scrambling up the social ladder by exploiting her guile, good looks and the gullibility of doting males. In the light of her selfish, single-minded resolve to achieve success, Sharp may be viewed as an optimistic dreamer, pragmatic schemer, proto-feminist or a coquettish combination of all three.
