Another loved the originality, writing on Twitter: "#Landscapers is honestly brilliant. Creative, quirky and that's just the protagonists! Doesn't judge but also has all the tropes of true crime drama but is original with it. Would recommend (just not when the in laws are over)."

A third wrote: "PSA #Landscapers is f*****g excellent. Go about your day. But watch #Landscapers".

One viewer described it as "compelling", they wrote: "I watched the #Landscapers miniseries last night starring Olivia Coleman. It’s about Susan and Chris Edwards who were convicted of murder in 2014. The cinematography is so compelling. If you’re studying film/TV you could analyse it for days!"

Another felt the series was confusing. They shared on social media: "I’m watching #Landscapers and I really don’t get what they were trying to do, the story (based on a true one) is ok, I like the dialogue and that but it’s just shot really weirdly. I don’t know, maybe I’m just not clever enough to get it lol".

Landscapers is available via Sky Atlantic and NOWTV.
