The Tunnel sequel aims to reunite Stephen Dillane and Clémence Poésy

14 March 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Sky Atlantic planning second series of serial killer drama adapted from Scandinavian original The Bridge

Sky will look to reunite Stephen Dillane and Clémence Poésy in a sequel to its serial killer thriller The Tunnel, its adaptation of Scandinavian crime noir, The Bridge.

The Tunnel proved to be one of Sky Atlantic's most popular homegrown dramas, beginning with nearly 500,000 viewers when it launched last year.

The broadcaster is now developing a sequel, although it will not be an adaptation of the second series of The Bridge, which recently ended on BBC4, but an entirely new series.

It is thought likely the sequel will focus on another murder investigation featuring UK and French locations and police, although Sky has not committed to a full series commission yet.

Sky is keen to reunite Game of Thrones star Dillane, as laid-back British detective Karl Roebuck, and Poésy as his uptight French opposite number, »

‘The Tunnel’ DVD Review

11 January 2014 8:02 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

I guess when starting this review of The Tunnel I will have to state something, yes I know it’s a remake of The Bridge and no I’ve not seen it yet but it’s safe to assume I will be watching it in the future.  Now we have got our way past that I can say that this review will be on The Tunnel and based on the show itself, not a comparison to the original.

When a body is found in the service tunnels in the Channel Tunnel between the United Kingdom and France the French detective Elise Wassermann (Clémence Poésy) claims jurisdiction as the body appears to be that of a French politician.  This are complicated though as the body splits apart leaving the legs on the UK side of the border line and the torso in France.  More sinister is the fact that the two-part »

Stephen Dillane on The Tunnel, crime thrillers and Game of Thrones

10 January 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Scandi crime drama The Bridge may have attracted a strong fan following in the UK, but one person who's never seen the noirish thriller is actor Stephen Dillane, who recently starred in The Tunnel, a new series based on the Nordic original.

"I had no idea at all of the existence of the Scandinavian show when I was first sent the script," admits Dillane - who plays laid-back British detective Karl Roebuck. "I was told that there was this other project called The Bridge and it was then a question of whether to look at it or not, and I decided not to.

"I wanted to come at it fresh. I think sometimes you can look at original material and you can develop attachments that aren't necessarily helpful."

With no concept of the project's origins, it was simply a "well-written" script that attracted Dillane to The Tunnel and the character of Karl, »

The Bridge star talks series 2: 'I thought no one would like Saga'

3 January 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Bridge was one of a roster of Scandinavian drama series – since dubbed 'Nordic Noir' – that captured the imagination of UK audiences in the past two years.

Now returning to BBC Four for a second series, the crime thriller still retains many of the familiar elements that attracted viewers first time round – chiefly Sofia Helin's wonderful Saga – but also sees it grow and develop from the episodes that aired here in early 2012.

"I'm very proud of the visual development with this series," says Helin. "This season, we had one main director who did the first four episodes and the two last episodes. We had someone who could see the whole picture, so that's different from the first."

Why does Helin believe that the first series of The Bridge struck such a chord with BBC Four viewers though? "I think The Bridge is so popular because it offers another universe. »
