Servant (Apple TV+ Review)

This is a series you could binge in 4 hours with each episode just half an hour long.  It centres around an 18 year old au paire who seemingly inserts herself into the lives of a family and so cleverly written by the end of it we realise we actually haven’t learned anything about her.

Lauren Ambrose and Toby Kebbell play such strong characters, the rich dialogue establishes two very valid viewpoints where their nanny is concerned while details slowly emerge around the plastic baby.  Sidekick to the couple, Rupert Grint adds to the drama as Dorothy’s brother Julien as he seeks to uncover the mystery surrounding the new house guest.

Peppered throughout each episode are miniscule details on the backstory of Leanne Grayson and strange events with just enough to keep us interested – from plastic dolls coming back to life, to reanimated crickets, strange relatives, a burned down childhood home.  It’s all just very creepy and apparently needs six seasons for the story to be told.


“Servant” is a new psychological thriller directed by Academy Award nominated M. Night Shyamalan that follows a Philadelphia couple in mourning after an unspeakable tragedy creates a rift in their marriage and opens the door for a mysterious force to enter their home.
