Critic Reviews for The Tunnel: Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

This could be a great balm for those still missing The Bridge, but only if the rapport between the two detectives is as warm and humorous as the one Bachir and Kruger developed.

Sure its backdrop of grey, English Channel towns, with their 1970s architecture and prolific seagulls, is hardly uplifting, but the characters feel believable with real depths and conflicts.

April 19, 2017 | Full Review…

The ability to juxtapose the dualities of countries and countrymen, people divided by politics and history who have evolved to have different cultures and mannerisms, remains fascinating to watch.

Clever and at times piquant, it's no masterpiece. But it is an excellent summer diversion.

June 17, 2016 | Full Review…

It stands on its own on the strength of its cast and direction, but more importantly, has been adapted in such a way that it casts old European enmities in a new light.

June 17, 2016 | Rating: B | Full Review…

The series is crisply staged, well-acted, but only mildly diverting.
