Storyline

Starting at the end, with a suspect caught, the series moves backwards in time through the string of gruesome murders, gradually unraveling the truth. Enigmatic, unrelenting and charismatic, we follow DCI Gabriel Markham as he is propelled in an obsessive hunt for a serial killer who left a mark on him both physically and mentally. As the clock ticks back, and Gabriel's personal and professional lives unfurl, we explore the painful psychology of a man disfigured, while the shock waves from the crime ripple out in reverse. Alongside a thrilling chase to catch a brutal killer, Rellik explores the very nature of motivation, as we delve deeper into the past to uncover the events that shape a person into who they will become.

Confusing and pretentious
16 September 2017 | by julia-83997See all my reviews

I have watched the first episode twice and still can't relate to the characters, the plot or the overall presentation. I find the odd camera angles bizarre and the wind backs really stupid. You are just beginning to make some sense of it all, when the clock winds back and you are starting from another angle. Seems like the producers are running out of ideas for a good story and think that the post modern 'arty' approach is the way to go. Even the pretentious title of 'Killer' backwards is overthought and tedious. Shan't be watching another episode, but I can only hope it gets better. Please BBC give us some well written and paced 'noir' like Spiral or the Scandie noir genre.
