Damian Knight edited episode 3 and most of episode 2 and he also helped shape the entire series in the overall style and look.
“It was a fantastic but challenging series to work on as the narrative was quite complex at times and steering a clear course through the twists and turns was a key issue. The story of Ruth is actually quite relevant today and helping Gillian (Patcher, the director) craft her story was a hugely rewarding experience.” – Damian Knight
