A quality thriller.

As drama, it's all a bit meat and two veg.

Nov 19, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

It's atmospheric and quietly riotous - but there is also a whiff of the experimental side-project about it.

Nov 13, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Dark Heart is one of those dramas that has all its bits in the right place, but I still can't quite take to the whole.

Nov 9, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Just look at the female characters, ciphers who exist solely and exclusively to drive Will Wagstaffe (who is brilliant and intuitive, of course) through the story.

Dark Heart is largely carried on the strength of lead actor Tom Riley, who brings a sense of nuance into the well-trodden territory of TV procedurals.

Stream it, if only because of Tom Riley as Wagstaffe.

Audience Reviews for Dark Heart: Series 1

  • Dec 01, 2018
    Tom Riley lacks the charisma to carry this off. It becomes a formulaic series with a troubled detective with angst from his complicated past, and no redeeming qualities of humour or vulnerability. We watched the first episode and felt we had to see the series through but won't bother again.
