Critic Reviews for Loch Ness: Season 1

All Critics (14)

Loch Ness sorts through this chamber of horrors (and chamber of commerce nightmare) in ways that can be both gripping and more than a little far-fetched at times.

Loch Ness might not be pure noir, but it's enjoyable noir light.

The Loch aspires to be a Scottish Broadchurch -- Braidkirk? -- but, alas, is nothing of the sort.

It does a good job of slowly building up a portrait of a troubled but brilliant man with little regard for authority but great regard for the law itself. Definitely worth a look.

This disjointed head-scratcher of a crime serial piled so many ludicrous events into its first hour that by the end I couldn't help laughing in disbelief.

ITV has promised that the loch will become a "character in its own right," which is probably a good thing because it surely has more depth than any of the other characters in this show (pun intended).
