But when it comes to True Detective, the final episode of which we’ve just watched in the last hour or so, something has to be said about what an astonishing piece of TV it was, dark and troubling and with a pair of award-worthy central performances by Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.

Really very very good indeed.
