Bennett's tight, compassionate scripts touch on everything from the impact of Brexit to the increased presence of immigration officers without ever forgetting that this is at heart a story about a community.

I'm afraid it all got a bit much for me.

For fans of the original series, Top Boy's comeback delivers. If you've never seen it before, you can jump in with Season 3. Just be prepared to be a bit confused until the end of episode 1.

Against the backdrop of the highly publicised increase in youth violence, Top Boy now feels more urgent than ever before.

Sep 5, 2019 | Full Review…

The performances from cast members old and new simmer and flare brilliantly. Deeply steeped in place in a way that few other urban dramas are, it's a must-see.

[T]he characters have depth, and their actions have consequences. It sounds real, and the conflicted streets of east London look amazing.

It's brutal and it's vivid, and you won't understand a word.

Sep 16, 2019 | Full Review…

It is not a flattering portrait of our times, but as a TV drama, it is up there with the best - tense, gripping and relentless.

Drake has done British viewers a favour. We can thank him later.

    Thank you Drake for bringing back Top Boy. This is one of the greatest shows out and the new season is just as good as the first two but this time we get the length it deserves.

    You need to watch this. This show is phenomenal. Everything about it feels so real. Great cinematography, outstanding performances from the actors and really compelling story lines. Jaime and Ats were great additions to the show. Season 3 is the best yet.

    Got me craving another 10 episodes real bad. There is nothing else like Top Boy it is the best of its kind from the visual aspect to the storytelling everything is done perfectly. So glad they kept to the most of original cast this could of been so easy to ruin but they got it spot on

    Finally. A Stupendously, Gripping and true depiction of the gangster life and underworld of Britain. Masterful. No black and white, biased nonsense that's plagued the UK TV screens for so long. The director executed a phenomenal task and the actors, many of them who have absolutely NO acting experience does what so many drama brags cannot. Act.

    Immersive charecters, great social commentary and a compelling story line. Waiting on season 4.
  • Sep 20, 2019
    If you've grown up around many of the topics covered in this series, you would hugely appreciate the level of truth and reality the writers and actors create. Loved every second of it. It should, I hope create conversation on how we can do better as a society in the capital.
