Masters of Sex

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again. This clumsily titled show, stuck away on More 4 at 10.00 pm, is one of the best things on the box. at least an hour of tonight’s 80-minute episode featured Masters and Johnson in their hotel bedroom, mainly talking. But it was sustained, moving, subtly changing drama, beautifully written and performed. The different strands – the Archie Moore fight on TV, Masters’ memories of his father, the gender assignation case he’s left at the hospital – weave together into an exploration of masculinity that’s seriously absorbing. If you haven’t been watching, give it a try.
