Grips the windpipe
10 September 2017 | by martyncymroSee all my reviews

I had read very an extremely positive review in the Guardian (UK) newspaper, which termed it 'absolutely standout' TV show of the week, and decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed. Set in a small town in the Canadian wilderness and starring Tim Roth as the local chief of police - a former London detective and a recovering alcoholic, who had moved there to escape his demons. Little of what they might be, except for the obvious alcoholism are revealed in the first episode, but the affable, relaxed character gives hints that they may be something much, much darker. The tranquility of the small town is disturbed when an oil company, with a poor environmental record, no surprise there, builds an oil refinery near the town. The characters are well portrayed by an able cast if actors and the while the dialogue may have its faults on occasion, I found the first episode enthralling and am looking forward to the remainder. A second series/season has already been commissioned.
