The firey who was in the final stages looked like a living breathing figure from one of those ghoulish human taxidermy exhibitions that tour about.

The Radiation injuries are pretty damn realistic, especially the time frame as they don't show immediately, but if you want to really recoil in horror, googling the real life pics of Hisashi Ouchi (yes, that's his real name) will show just how much worse it can get... don't view while eating.
So easy to place judgement on people like his wife whose natural inclination is to try to hold and comfort him, and you're just thinking "jesus you dumb bitch", but you also know it's simply not her fault. The intransigence of the State in telling the public and those affected absolutely nothing including precautions.
I listened to an interview with Jared Harris on the most recent Empire Magazine podcast over the weekend and apparently the final episode is a play by play breakdown of the actual clusterfuck on the night.
Just an incredible show. Structured perfectly, like a true life detective story that we all know how it ends but is absolutely gripping from start to finish.
+1. Epic, gritty and uber realistic. Read someone familiar with 80's CCCP who said even the tiny details are spot on - like men wearing wedding rings on their right hand not their left. Anyone whinging its not in Russian with sub titles can FRO - If you're reading sub titles you're missing the drama.
