Critic Reviews for Hinterland: Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

This isn't West Wales as seen in the brochure. The place is drenched not only in rain but also blood, while the landscapes are grimly wintry, as are the faces of everyone involved in this deliciously dark show.

Satisfying Gothic touches hauled it a thousand miles away from the standard crime dramas and I started to enjoy the story.

Deyond the dramatic but hardscrabble setting, "Hinterland" is just like a lot of other British cop shows, except slower and a little more formulaic.

The films do vary in quality - one and four are probably the best - but visually, Hinterland is spectacular, and [Richard] Harrington's performance is strong.

Hinterland doesn't feel over-researched on the police-procedural front either - making a virtue out of a necessity... the Welsh language doesn't lend itself to police jargon.

The story was told with distinctive verve... a combination of common sense, superstition, and a hidden intensity lurking behind neat curtains.
