Next of Kin is an earnest, tightly focused story about the travails of an Anglo-Pakistani family. ... Ms. Panjabi carries off a delicate task, delineating motives and keeping our sympathy, as her character alternately rebels against and cooperates with the British agents tracking her nephew.
Next of Kin is full of mysteries worth solving. But the slow pace can sometimes prove a challenge. And otherwise smart characters make uncharacteristically stupid decisions that are hard to believe. ... The show comes with so much cultural baggage it’s hard not to notice when it veers into the same old clichés that underpinned “24” and “Homeland.”
