This story is very interesting, full of twists and turns, and flew under the radar outside of New York (I’m an American but not a New Yorker). The narration is great, loved the music. The acted parts added to the narrative. My only issue was the lack of authentic American accents. Normally, I don’t pick on details like this, but couldn’t the BBC have used American actors? It was so distracting to me. I get that everyone criticizes foreign actors feigning accents, but because this is an all audio platform, I found it grating - strange NYC accents, funny lilting, weird use of American slang that didn’t go over well (“axed”? Really?).
