'The Control Room is one of those rare beasts. It’s a thriller that takes a tremendous, hooky premise, then builds around it with loving detail'
Lucy Mangan, The Guardian.

'With its fresh-feeling premise, fleshed out characters, and just enough twists to deliver escapism without compromising believability, The Control Room has all the ingredients to emerge as one of the year’s standout dramas'
Emily Watkins, inews

'The direction and design are stylish, the flashbacks are elegantly handled, and nuanced performances create a drama that’s equal parts adrenaline shot and fever dream.'

'Three-part serial - is thick with nightmarish atmosphere that makes Gabriel’s blind terror believable as he stumbles from crisis to crisis.'
Christopher Stevens, The Daily Mail

'The drama is directed by Amy Neil (Trust MeHANNA), so we’re in very safe hands when it comes to nailing that high-octane, slow-burning feeling'
Morgan Cormack, The Stylist
