Dublin Murders: Season 1 (2019)


Season 1
Dublin Murders

Critics Consensus

Thrilling, but a bit tired, Dublin Murders's grim subject matter is no doubt gripping, but for some it may feel a little like djvu.

Critic Reviews for Dublin Murders Season 1

Dublin Murders might have made for a pleasingly mopey whodunnit along the lines of Shetland or Broadchurch if Phelps weren't so obviously unsure of her source material.

You could forgive the ending's murkiness because the series earned it.

Dublin Murders might not be one for the craic addicts, but I find it hoary nevertheless. I feel, somehow, that I've seen it all before.

It is a tasty slice of cut-and-come-again cake, even if the relationship between Cassie and Rob - upon which the credibility of the story turns (or will, if faithful to the books) - is not yet sufficiently close or well-drawn.

Remember that if you're drawn to what is an unusually ethereal mystery, one that is tricky and sometimes off-kilter. You've been warned. The cast is excellent, by the way.

Lucky for us, "Dublin Murders" revels in characters that can both sink and swim.

Dublin Murders is very good indeed.

Nov 8, 2019 | Full Review…

It all helped to build the haunting ambiguity of the piece...melancholy landscape shots, claustrophobic interiors and Volker Bertelmann's disturbing soundtrack intensified the effect.

Nov 6, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Wait until the run is over and binge this show so you're not exhausted by all the twists and turns.

Nov 12, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a refreshing if unsettling reminder that life is full of unanswered and haunting questions.

Nov 8, 2019 | Full Review…

The psychological mystery takes many twists and turns as it winds its way to an almost inevitable conclusion, and at times it takes modest but bizarre detours.

Nov 8, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Despite the intriguing, emotional world that the series builds through a deeply atmospheric setting and compelling narrative ideas, Dublin Murders lurches through its final hours and comes out murky, confused, and unnecessarily rushed.

Audience Reviews for Dublin Murders: Season 1

  • Jan 15, 2020
    Two series recently have both come from Ripper Street, the male detective from this and the lead female witch from The Witcher. This was very interesting, great performances, I will definitely look for the actors again...story had a good amount of twists however the over arching story wasn't resolved.

    I didn't know the books and I didn't like the series anyway. It's all over the place and the characters are very badly written, especially Rob/Adam. They turned him into a pathetic joke. The ending was the worst I've seen in a long time. Frustrating that I wasted time on this.

    I love Tana French's books and unfortunately this series didn't come close to the magic she wrote. Especially episode 7 when it completely turns from the books--THE LIKENESS in particular—it ruins everything. It turns Daniel into an unhinged psychopath and the rest have no personalities at all. I'm so disappointed! Not only that, the writers turned Rob Reilly into an unmitigated ass with nothing likable about him. I like the moody atmosphere, but that's about it. Unfortunately, the writer missed it almost completely.

    Really hoping for a season 2

    Really enjoyed it, first few episodes were little confusing, but then it really took off...the final episode was a shocker!! Really hope there's Season 2.

    I found it incoherent. At least in the novels, you knew there was another page coming. Cutting away from a scene to indicate you took the course where they told you about transition to the Hanging Cause and then finding yourself in another era is hard to explain, especially in television.

    I stuck with this series until I gave up part way through episode seven. The acting is good, and, initially, the plot was close enough to the books to be interesting. When "The Likeness" was added to "In the Woods" the show began to fall apart for me. The series simplified and cheapened the characters and sensationalized the plot in some ugly and unnecessary ways. This was a severe disappointment. I hope more Tana French mysteries are made into TV series, but with a different director. What the director of "The Tunnel". "The Missing". of "unforgotten" could have done with this material!

    This is a good show. A grey and gritty who dunnit with excellent cast.
  • Dec 08, 2019
    I think I would have liked the show okay if I had not read, and loved, Tana French's books. The writer seems to have completely missed all the magic of the books.
