What has Henry Lloyd Hughes said about BBC's Marriage?

Henry Lloyd-Hughes is clearly proud of his work on BBC's Marriage and recently branded the series as the best BBC show "this year". Speaking to Virgin Radio, the actor said: "I think it's so deeply, painfully truthful in all the ways a drama can be and I recognise it's a bit different.

"Especially if you're used to seeing Sean Bean in Game of Thrones or Nicola Walker fighting crime, but I also think that this is the best drama that the BBC will do this year."
