Collateral: Miniseries (2018)


Critic Consensus: Collateral's social commentary is sometimes overbearing, but strong performances cut through an overcrowded script to suggest that good intentions can count for something.

Tv Season Info

The killing seems professional but the only witness, a young woman strung out on drugs on the street corner, gives the police a false name and address. Kip tracks down Abdullah's home, a set of garages, to find his sisters. They are scared and Kip's convinced they're hiding something. Set over the course of four days, the spiraling repercussions surrounding Abdullah's murder are explored. Politician David Mars (John Simm) becomes instantly embroiled in the drama through his turbulent relationship with his ex-wife Karen who took delivery of the pizza. While Jane Oliver (Nicola Walker), a compassionate vicar, struggles to conceal her affair with the sole witness to the crime. Refusing to accept this is a random act of senseless violence, Kip is determined to discover if there is a darker truth, as the death of one individual, who has lived out of the sight of respectable society, begins to resonate through the institutions that shape our lives.

Critic Reviews for Collateral Miniseries

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (7)

From the beginning, the show was not only superbly high energy, but peopled with characters whose back stories are easily as gripping as the main action.

Mars looks like a nice guy so far, but who can tell what's going on behind those curranty eyes?

This could be a fruitful exercise, if tackled with care, and a willingness to find nuance in a subject that's deeply fraught. But Hare, whose work has always had a polemicist strain, paints only in black and white.

By centering this story around all of these totemic societal institutions, Collateral is taking a broad view of all of these key political, legal, and religious pillars, which are subject to the individuals who comprise them.

Frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if male viewers felt a little bit left out.

Feb 15, 2019 | Full Review…

Collateral felt believable and exciting.

Mulligan provides the backbone for a series that could easily have gone awry. Yet Hare's drama is perfectly suited to give her a starring vehicle.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Consistently awful from week one.

Jul 10, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Hare had gone to such lengths to avoid cliches in creating the character of DI Kip Glaspie that he ended up with someone scarcely believable.

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

In a genre that prefers its women dead, or naked, or hardened and distant, there's a refreshing vitality to the women of Collateral: They defy tropes and elevate their material into something quietly revolutionary.
