In the first episode Michael Gambon is discussing the death of a Mr. Pettigrew - a nod to the Harry Potter series. Michael of course played Dumbledore in said series, which also featured a Mr. Pettigrew. See more »

Fortitude is a great show: exotic, thrilling, well played, with an outstanding story.
The photography as well as the music are perfectly in tune with the story, making it a must-watch thriller series in my opinion.
At about episode 7, I must say I fear for the worse as I'm not sure the story can develop and keep getting interesting and still realistic with no cheap trick, but I'm placing hope in the screenwriters that did a brilliant job so far.
TV seems to be the best format for actors to show their worth. I'm never been that impressed with Stanley Tucci.
I did not know the other actors that well, but many deliver super solid performances, among them Richard Dormer, Sofie Gråbøl and Darren Boyd.
