News & Interviews for Baptiste: Series 1
A quietly unfolding drama in six episodes, it's coolly gripping and well thought-out.
After something of a slow start, Baptiste starts to gain momentum and the way it delivers narrative curveballs is striking. So is Mr. Karyo's stolid portrayal of Baptiste.
A disappointing conclusion to a series which never quite justified its existence.
Hopefully he will find a little more energy as the case ramps up.
He's Baptiste. And played with pitch-perfect understatement and confidence by Tchéky Karyo, there's still more than enough of him to make for a fine crime drama.
Baptiste remains grimly compulsive viewing - driven by an intelligent and twisting script, as well as a trio of excellent performances.
Across European nationality, the multi-lingual cast is amazing.
In a subtly mesmeric performance, Karyo captures the determination and grind necessary to wade through such a dark murky world in a desperate, sometimes futile, attempt to save the lost.
Tom Hollander is the one who makes the most of the enigmas of his character and transmits the darkness that follows him. [Full Review in Spanish]
Audience Reviews for Baptiste: Series 1
Dec 22, 2020Almost amateurish, seems like a RAI fiction
Jul 20, 2020He's old and run out of steam. The acting is as good as can be. The plot has been told before. Time to retire, Baptiste.

Jun 26, 2020Loved Baptiste. A compelling mystery with an elderly, retired detective who is smart and compassioate. I looked forward to it on Sunday night as tv highlight. I hope there are many more episodes.
May 18, 2020Huge fan of Baptise...loved his character on The Missing...want more!
May 18, 2020Really outstanding series, each episode better than the last. The actors nothing short of superb. The suspense just keeps building and building and just never stops. Probably the best thing I've seen this year. I'm hoping for a second series.
May 16, 2020It's that old "over-the-hill male called back to duty" plot, and retired French detective Julien Baptiste screws up so often, you'll think he should just stay home and spend his days solving jigsaw puzzles. The storyline starts out realistically enough, but the less than believable plot twists and Baptiste's tiresome pontificating made me wish my Firestick had a more user-friendly fast forward.
Apr 20, 2020Fantastic character, writing and stories. Baptiste is one of my favorites.
Apr 15, 2020The trailer for this show looked intriguing plus I liked the story being set in Amsterdam. I knew of Tom Hollander's work so I thought I'd give the show a try. I was blown away by the series. Outstanding plot and intriguing story. Tchéky Karyo who plays Baptiste is such an amazing actor. I didn't realize this series was a spin-off of "The Missing". So I binged watched these out of order! I am now suffering from post series depression. I miss his character! I truly hope they make a season 2.
