THE DRIVER
April 13, 2015  | By David Bianculli

Acorn TV, 12:00 a.m. ET

 

MINISERIES PREMIERE: Part 1 of 3. Acorn TV is importing and presenting this three-part British miniseries, starring David Morrissey as a Manchester cabbie turned getaway driver, over as many weeks. You can watch the opening installment on Acorn’s streaming service beginning any time today, with Part 2 arriving next Monday, and the concluding installment a week after that. For Walking Dead fans who loved to hate Morrissey as the Governor, watching this 2014 miniseries may be interesting, and genre fans may also be pleased by the actor playing the tough-guy mobster: He’s Colm Meaney, who broke out as Chief O’Brien on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. This opening installment starts and ends with a car chase – the same one – which serves to bookend the flashback that explains how and why Morrissey’s cabbie went from fare to foul.
