Criminal, Series 1-2
Within the walls of an interrogation room, investigators across four different countries go up against the clock to charge 12 suspects, each one accused of a grievous crime. Created by George Kay (Killing Eve) and Jim Field Smith (The Wrong Mans), Criminal is split into four mini-series set across UK, France, Spain and Germany, each filmed in the location’s native language. These tense episodes are all set in an interrogation suite centred around a sparse room where detectives stare down suspects and spar with legal counsels. From time to time there’s a glimpse behind the vast two-way mirror that looms large in the interrogation suite; or into the police station corridor, where we see detectives grabbing coffee and saying what they can’t say when the interview tape is recording. Starring the likes of Kit Harrington, Hayley Atwell, Sharon Horgan and David Tennant, this is a nail-biting drama.
