What have people said about Honour?

The series has attracted controversy after Banaz’s sister, Payzee Mahmod, 30, claimed the two-part drama focuses on Ms Hawes’s character Detective Caroline Goode instead of her dead sibling, an Iraqi Kurd.

She told the BBC: “It doesn’t really sit too well with me that that’s the angle they chose to go with because that’s not Banaz’s story.

“That’s somebody else’s story. This is about somebody who lost her life very tragically.”

Honour writer Gwyneth Hughes has been in touch with Ms Mahmod to offer her assurances.

Ms Hawes said last week: “In a time where honour killings are still rife, it is critical to shine a light on such an important subject.

"Banaz Mahmod's story, and DCI Goode's subsequent investigation, is certainly one that needs to be told and I am proud to be a part of it."
