River

River

Stellan Skarsgård stars as John River, a brilliant police officer whose genius and faultline is the fragility of his mind – a man haunted by the murder victims whose secrets he must unlock, a man who walks a professional tightrope between a pathology so extreme he risks permanent dismissal, and a healthy state of mind that could cure him of his gift. Created and written by Emmy and BAFTA winning screenwriter Abi Morgan this enthralling thriller pushes our expectations of crime drama in bold and unexpected ways.

Walker continues to embellish a lovely career in which she handles very different portraits with skill and insight, this one of a troubled police detective on the trail of corruption which hits close to home, as she strives to nurture the damaged psyche of her friend and colleague. Inspiring and entertaining within a delightful musical motif.

This is an incredible series! I was hooked after one episode. The acting was some of the best I've ever seen. I love Nicola Walker! This series, along with Unforgotten has made me a lifelong fan. River will keep you on the edge of your seat, make you laugh, cry and cheer. I've watched it twice!-
