Selected Scenes

A delicious blend of drama, dark comedy and thriller, and a chaotic case study of sisterhood. The tight-knit Garvey sisters have always looked out for each other. When their brother-in-law winds up dead, his life insurers launch an investigation to prove malicious intent—and set their sights on the sisters, all of whom had ample reason to kill him.

Cinematographer Nicole Hirsh Whitaker set the look for this 10-part new Apple+ TV series. I took over from her as cinematographer in the last 3 weeks of block 1 (ep 1 + 2 + 3) with Irish director Dearbhla Walsh, and I then shot block 2 (ep 4 + 5 + 6) with Swedish director Josephine Bornebusch. Tim Palmer BSC and David Pimm shot block 3 (ep 7 + 8 + 9 + 10).

★★★★ The Guardian
"Wittily directed and gorgeously shot, this is a fine addition to the growing collection of stories told unapologetically for, by and about women on mainstream television.”

★★★★ iNews
"In making the victim so irredeemable and therefore making his killer the good guy, Bad Sisters sets itself apart from its contemporaries.”

★★★★ RadioTimes
"The series seamlessly treads the fine line between amusement and unpacking the insidious nature of abuse that has no physical markers, but leaves one's emotional health in tatters.”
