Photographer Garry Lake shared these gorgeous new photos of Joseph on Twitter last night, and the Independent posted a lovely review for one of Joseph's scenes in episode 3. 

There’s no doubt Banished is heavy on plot (tonight we had the holy trinity of fighting, pregnancy and a suicide attempt), and there are enough Things Going On to stop us changing channels, but it works best when the strong cast and heavyweight writer are allowed the breathing space to work their magic.

The moment when Major Ross (Joseph Millson) tried to get Katharine McVitie (Joanna Vanderham) to talk against her will was perhaps the only scene where the plot wasn’t being driven relentlessly forward, and it was quietly brilliant, with Millson and Vanderham being given a few minutes where neither had to say things like "but this is what I’m going to do next".
