Sky Atlantic's The Tunnel is a British-French co-production and a pretty faithful remake of cult Scandi hit The Bridge, only here the first episode's corpse is found midway between France and Britain in the Eurotunnel instead of on the Øresund bridge that connects Sweden and Denmark.
I am in the fortunate position of having nothing to compare it with, because The Bridge remains on my list of "must get around to watching" shows. My only expectations were, "It'll be a bit dark", and that Stephen Dillane (who plays Karl Roebuck, the British investigating officer) would be brilliant because he has never turned in a bad performance. Likewise, Cleménce Poésy, who plays his socially impeded French counterpart Elise Wasserman. I wasn't sure about them as a pairing
