Welsh noir is picking up the baton from knackered old Scandi noir. KEEPING FAITH, created by Matthew Hall and directed by Pip Broughton, is its flagship.
“KEEPING FAITH” gripped Wales throughout its eight-part run, and I can surely see why. A toothsome plot, indeed. But what gives it its life force is Eve Myles in surely a (deserved) breakout role. Myles is equally at ease gassing drunkenly with Cardiff mates, bouncing babies, and grittily uncovering tracks.
The biggest draw is Eve Myles as Faith Howells. Faith is well-drawn and Myles embodies her completely. Her Faith is full of color and life. Her Faith is also warmth and charm, temper and frustration. Her Faith seems absolutely real. There’s no way you could ever tire of watching Eve Myles.
