HOOKED from the very first episode, Channel 4 viewers couldn't help but binge It's A Sin leaving them "sobbing".
The new drama by Queer As Folk boss, Russell T Davies charts the early days of the HIV pandemic in Britain.
The first episode dropped on Friday, with new episodes premiering weekly but eager fans could not wait and binged the entire series on Channel 4's streaming service.
Described as possibly the first British drama dedicated to the impact of HIV in the 1980s and 1990s, It's A Sin has already made a mark on the cultural landscape with many describing the show as "phenomenal".
The groundbreaking story follows Ritchie Tozer – played by Years and Year singer Olly Alexander in a star making performance – as he moves to the bright lights of London to pursue his dream of becoming an actor.
Ritchie moves in to the 'Pink Palace' with a group of friends who begin to explore their sexuality and the promising optimism of adulthood before the HIV pandemic brings their lives crashing down.
