Netflix fans can’t stop watching 10/10 ‘intense’ new thriller starring Top Boy actress


Netflix fans have made the leap to ITVX to see one of the stars from the platform’s hit series Top Boy in a new thriller series.

Jasmine Jobson, who plays Jacqueline Lawrence in the gangster crime drama, was singled out for praise for her role in Platform 7.

She appeared as the lead, Lisa Evans, of the ‘intense’ four-part series which fans have rated ’10/10′ just a few months after playing her part in Top Boy’s final season.

One wrote: ‘#TopBoy’s Jasmine Jobson really exceeded with this one. A story on mental health, suicide and abuse. Captivating and thrilling!’

The show’s title refers to the location of a suicide which Lisa witnesses, with the serious themes contributing to it being a ‘fantastic series, with the caveat that it’s quite intense’.

Platform 7 ‘tells the story of Lisa who witnesses a cataclysmic event on platform 7 of a railway station and in her memory finds a connection between her own life and the event she just witnessed.’

The plot is based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Louise Doughty with Geoffrey Sax – who has previously worked on White Noise (2005) and Us (2020) – directing the adaptation.

It soon becomes apparent to viewers that Lisa is actually a ghost herself, with the train station acting as some form of purgatory until she follows her family out and tries to discover what went so wrong in her life.

Other viewers of the series complemented the lead for her portrayal of the character, and the series as a whole.

They said: ‘Platform 7 ITV X, Jasmine Jobson (Top Boy) so flipping good, binge watch!…

‘If you haven’t watched Platform 7, give it a watch, with “Jacqs” aka Jasmine Jobson as the main character it’s really good!…

‘Platform 7, what a fantastic series!…

‘Just finished watching Platform 7 on @ITV. Brilliant 4 part series…

‘@jobson_jasmine just watched platform 7. One word WoW Your acting is class!’

Some viewers who made the trip from Top Boy to Platform 7 could not disentangle Jobson from her former role.

One said: ‘I just watched platform 7, touching story But I can only see Jax.

‘Like the face she pulls when’s she angry upset or confused, that’s straight up Jax.’

The actress admitted to Digital Spy in advance of the new series that this was a big departure from her previous work, saying: ‘I haven’t played anybody like Lisa before.’

But she added that she loved ‘trying something new’ and feeling like a fly on the wall as the living characters interacted around her.

‘It definitely felt weird being involved in the scene and not really feeling involved,’ she added.

‘But at the same time there’s so much involvement that I’ve got there and then also I had to get used to not having anything to say.’

It becomes apparent to viewers and the lead character that she is a ghost, but she still seeks to work out what went so wrong in  her former life
