“Carney’s Toddy, on the surface the most cartoonish of the characters, becomes in a way the most rounded and believable of the bunch with his switch from bolshy boy to subdued young man as the enormity of his actions hits home.“
“Chris Carney as Winston’s saviour/ nemesis O’Brien bought a cool, frightening intensity to his role that was hard to ignore.“
