Goofs

If the permafrost is melting enough for a mammoth carcass to be revealed, it must be summer, so there should be no night at all during the time period DCI Morton visits Fortitude. See more »

The best new TV show I have seen this year
22 November 2015 | by mbangert1957See all my reviews

From the first episode I found this show to be mesmerizing. The dark, cold atmosphere of the area is well depicted but doesn't depress. The characters are true to life and all seem to have their histories, loves and hates. The community is close knit although the inhabitants come from various parts of the world. The determined FBI agent sent to the town is viewed with suspicion.The woolly mammoth that was dug up early on in the series lies in a shed and one feels the menace emanating from its carcass. Is this the source of the horrors? The story unfolds slowly but dramatically, the build up is excellent. From the start it keeps the watcher thinking is this sci fi or is there another dark secret. Can't wait for the second season.
