Dark is worth persevering with as the tension is ratcheted from gently claustrophobic to actively unnerving, and the decades-straddling plot settles into an web of conspiracies and buried secrets.

Even if some of the "You may like this..." seams still show in the making of Dark, its biggest selling point is as a story about a community haunted by something it refuses to talk about.

Compelling, beautifully made TV, which demands a little too much from the viewer to be absolutely essential.
