From the windswept sand dunes of the coastline to the badlands of the hinterland, Aberystwyth is the setting for this brand new 4 part drama series, as seen on the BBC. Into this world steps DCI Tom Mathias (Richard Harrington). On the run from his London past, a brilliant but troubled man, he isolates himself on the outskirts of town, a town filled with secrets as dark and destructive as his own. Partnered with the intelligent and complex DI Mared Rhys they form an engaging relationship as they embark on solving cases that involve the ultimate anti-social crime, murder.
Fantastic series. Original, intelligent scripts brilliantly acted against stunning location shooting. I'm amazed at how this isn't more widely known and appreciated. As for the extras on the 2nd DVD are they worth paying double to have just the first season? Yes they are every bit of them (if you can afford it). Brilliant, really.
This series is brilliant, one of the best drama's on tv for a long time. Brooding, dark addictive, I watched the whole series in one hit. Please, please let there be another series? I have seen Richard Harrington in earlier shows like Bleak House (brilliant) and Lark Rise to Candleford (good as well)but he really excells in this, and he is very hunky, a added bonus!
Love this series. Bought this to leave in our holiday cottage which is situated in the middle of most of the filming. I loved all the extras how they chose the locations, interviews with cast about their characters. Looking forward to the second series.
VERY IMPORTANT GET THE WELSH VERSION WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES!!!! GREAT SERIES, GREAT CASTING AND ACTING, VERY IMMERSIVE THOUGH DARK. WALES COUNTRYSIDE IS A STARKLY BEAUTIFUL CHARACTER AS WELL. IN THE HYBRID VERSION IN ENGLISH THE VOICES ARE OFTEN OVERSHADOWED BY THE EXCELLENT SCORE AND MUCH OF THE DIALOGUE IS SPOKEN SO SOFTLY THAT BETWEEN THAT AND THE ACCENTS I COULD ONLY CATCH 40%. TO GOOD A SERIES TO MISS THAT MUCH. HOPE SERIES HAS A LONG RUN
