Rellik recap: episode four – welcome to the worst night of Gabriel’s life

2 October 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

After three briskly back-pedalling episodes, we knew this was coming: the acid attack on Dci Gabriel Markham. This crucial scene was nightmarish

Most cop dramas go out of their way to make the case personal, but few have done it as emphatically as Rellik. For as long as we’ve known Dci Gabriel Markham, he has been a marked man, the left side of his face irrevocably scarred by an acid attack he is convinced was the handiwork of the serial killer he and his team are investigating. Under convincingly red and raw prosthetics that have evolved week to week, we’ve watched Richard Dormer glare, simmer and explode at colleagues and suspects alike. Apart from some fleeting moments of vulnerability – confessing to his police psychiatrist that his injuries make it hard to swallow, or gingerly dabbing antiseptic cream on to his ruined neck – the horrifying event seems to have »

Rellik recap: episode three – big frights and bad dads in the grimmest week yet

25 September 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

A sleazy, uneasy tale of terrible parents, this was the creepiest outing so far for the reverse crime drama

So the supremely creepy truth about Patrick Barker – the city type with the Kingsman glasses who we saw fleeing the country in episode one – emerges. He was having an affair with Sally, his wife Rebecca’s 20-year-old daughter from another marriage. When Rebecca caught the icky couple in bed, a distressed Sally brained her with a trophy Patrick had received for “thought leadership” in 2003. His subsequent thought leadership involved desecrating Rebecca’s body and dumping it in a children’s playpark to make it seem like the work of the acid killer.

Despite Patrick’s gory efforts at misdirection, Gabriel seemed to intuit that there was something off about him. But Richard Dormer’s raspy Dci abandoned the Barker investigation to track down his own daughter, Hannah, who had bunked off »

Rellik recap: episode two – TV that will only get more warped by the week

18 September 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

With deranged driving, al fresco sex and explosive confessions, the reverse serial killer story looks set to be more disturbing the deeper in (or further back) we get

One side effect of telling a serial killer story backwards is that it can seem like things are getting better, at least in terms of crime statistics. In Rellik’s some-assembly-required opener, disfigured detective Gabriel (Richard Dormer) and his partner Shepard (Jodi Balfour) had seven bodies piled up. Episode two kicks off a whole 16 days earlier, so now – or, more accurately, then – there are only five horrific murders outstanding.

That 16 days might seem rather a large leap, but it does land on another notably tumultuous 24-hour period for poor Gabriel as he crashes around chasing rickety leads while his personal life implodes. Shepard tries a different approach, pulling a sickie to smoke joints, listen to the Style Council and deal with some cryptic family business. »

Rellik and Liar review – a double helping of thrillers to get the pulse racing

11 September 2017 10:20 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Two dramas from the same writers vie head-to-head with each other, one cleverly playing with time, the other offering contradictory versions of an alleged rape

What a Monday evening for Jack and Harry Williams, the creators of The Missing and at least the second best Williams siblings in the world, who have two new primetime thrillers competing against each other on BBC1 and ITV, airing in the exact same slot. Perhaps it’s just a big stunt to promote catch-up services, or even ITV+1, as surely the audience will be one and the same.

From the title alone, Rellik (BBC1) sounds like the kind of Scandi noir crime drama that launches a thousand patterned jumpers. It’s the meatier of the two, in many ways; it’s gothic, it’s gruesome, and it’s all wrapped up in a reverse-time package (Rellik = Killer), that means we get to see what happened next, »

Rellik recap: episode one – step right up for the gothic murder moonwalk

11 September 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

With grave-diggers and acid attacks, this serial killer thriller told in reverse looks set to be a gripping brain workout for autumn. Let’s solve it together

Rellik sounds like the name of the latest Scandi-noir detective with a fondness for schnapps. But by now you probably know it’s also killer, backwards – a clever encapsulation of the latest high-concept crime drama from Jack and Harry Williams (creators of The Missing, One of Us and ITV’s Liar) because Rellik is a serial killer story told backwards, its narrative parcelled out in brief chunks in the style of films like Memento.

As Dci Gabriel Markham, an acid-scarred, bitumen-throated cop fuelled by vengeance, Richard Dormer (Aka Game of Thrones’s one-eyed flaming sword-swinger Beric) is the nominal star. But Rellik wants to turn everyone into detectives, forcing us to piece together its moonwalking murder mystery from clues as we go.

Rellik episode 1 review

New BBC serial killer drama has a gimmick and isn’t afraid to use it. Spoilers ahead in our episode one review…

This review contains spoilers.

See related  Taskmaster: Alex Horne on series 5, casting, remakes, the future Taskmaster: one of TV's funniest, most unexpected comedies Taskmaster: 2-part champion of champions special on its way

As a child writing homework stories for year six English, I had a power move: I’d make the last line of a story the same as its title. My gripping home invasion thriller ‘A Hard Night’ thus ended with the main character remarking with some accuracy “It was a hard night.”

You’re right to be impressed.

Year-six-me would, I think, have smiled a special smile had she landed upon the idea of titling a murder tale the word ‘killer’ backwards and then telling the story backwards. She’d »

Richard Dormer: 'Let’s face it, I have the coolest weapon in Game of Thrones'

11 September 2017 7:58 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From resurrection man Beric in Game of Thrones to Fortitude’s murderous sheriff, Richard Dormer is gruff, grisly and always memorable. The actor talks his 20-year fear of TV, his new thriller Rellik and his perilous flaming sword

There are actors you turn to when you’re looking for someone to save the world, and those who can make audiences swoon with just one careless smile. Then there are the men who are at war with themselves – and no one does that quite as well as Richard Dormer.

From the garrulous, troubled Terri Hooley in sleeper hit Good Vibrations to murderous sheriff Dan Anderssen in Fortitude and Game of Thrones’ much-resurrected warrior Beric Dondarrion, Dormer specialises in tormented souls.

Rellik: yet another gritty crime drama, only back to front

9 September 2017 2:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Using every cliche in the serial-killer manual, the new BBC show fancies itself as the next Scandi murder-mystery

Such is the ubiquity of crime dramas nowadays that, were I to come across a blood-spattered corpse while walking the dog, I would be more inclined to look around for the attendant film crew than call the police. So how to breathe new life into serial killer series? If you’re Rellik (11 September, 9pm, BBC1), you look to Christopher Nolan’s Memento or Gaspar Noé’s Irréversible for inspiration, and tell the story backwards. If only Midsomer Murders had thought of this.

Rellik (it’s “killer” backwards – geddit?) tells the tale of a murder investigation in reverse chronology. Thus, after seeing the apparent perpetrator cornered, the action spools back in time, pressing play at crucial points to dump great big slabs of exposition into the story while wilfully upending our understanding of »

'Game of Thrones' Star Discusses Tormund's "Frightening" Fate

30 August 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers for the season seven finale of HBO's Game of Thrones, "The Dragon and the Wolf."]

With so much time spent dwelling on the death of Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) and the fall of the Wall, few people have stopped to consider the very grim possibility that two other fan-favorite characters met their maker in the season seven finale of Game of Thrones.

The final scene of the episode, called "The Dragon and the Wolf," featured Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) and Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer) helplessly watching as the »

‘Game of Thrones’: A Way-Too-Early Look at Which Cast Members Deserve Emmy Consideration Next Year

30 August 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Let’s make one thing clear: On September 17, when Stephen Colbert hosts the Emmys, you won’t hear any “Game of Thrones” folks among the nominees. (Though, if any casino is taking bets, we’d like to put $20 on him wearing a Daenerys wig in the opening segment.) Season 7 of “Game of Thrones” premiered just too late to miss the eligibility window for this year’s ceremony, but that doesn’t mean the seven episodes’ worth of performances won’t be a huge factor in 2018.

Review: Game of Thrones – Season 7 – Episode 7

29 August 2017 2:46 PM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

Alas, the Song of Ice and Fire draws to a close once again.

Season 7 really has been one hell of a thrill ride. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) met Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), the Night King (Vladimir Furdik) met, and brought down, a dragon, Arya (Maisie Williams) and Sansa (Sophie Turner) were finally reunited and Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) managed to put yet another bun in Cersie’s (Lena Headey) oven. It’s also boasted the best battle scenes that Game of Thrones has shown yet, with the production team finally being gifted the budget the show has been dying for since day one. Indeed, spectacle wise, it would be very easy to label Season 7 as the best of all.

However.

Things have seemed a tad – un Game of Throneish this year. Maybe it’s because the story is finally getting going, and characters are being reunited, that have been apart for a number of seasons. »

Not Even Tormund Knows What Happened to His Character on Game of Thrones

29 August 2017 11:35 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Pray for us! #throwbackmonday #got7 #beric #richarddormer #whatwillhappen A post shared by Kristofer Hivju (@khivju) on Aug 28, 2017 at 11:36am Pdt The following contains spoilers for Game of Thrones season seven. The final two minutes of the Game of Thrones season seven finale are distressing, to put it mildly. Even more traumatizing than the Wall crumbling down and the White Walkers crossing into Westeros is the unknown fate of two fan-favorite characters, Tormund Giantsbane and Beric Dondarrion. The pair, who are at Eastwatch-by-the-Sea when wight Viserion and the Night King begin blasting the Wall apart, are last seen attempting to flee the destruction . . . but as the series stands, we still don't know whether they succeed or not. And neither, it seems, does the Got cast. The actor who plays Tormund, Kristofer Hivju, celebrated the finale with a selfie with Richard Dormer, who plays Beric, captioning his Instagram, "Pray for us! »

'Game of Thrones' Must-See Moment: What Won't Happen in the Season 7 Finale

27 August 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

When it comes to Game of Thrones, the possibilities are almost endless ... almost.

Sprung from the mind of author George R.R. Martin and brought into live-action through more than a decade of work by showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss, HBO's Thrones trades on the idea that bad things can happen to good people at any time, all of the time. And to riff on what's often said on the Iron Islands, what is dead does not always necessarily die, as both Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer) will happily tell anyone willing »

‘Game of Thrones’ Finale: Why Killing a Major Character Could Save Season 7 — Or Ruin Season 8

24 August 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following article contains spoilers for “Game of Thrones” Season 7 through Episode 6.]

The best thing and the worst thing that can happen in the “Game of Thrones” finale is one and the same: A major character dies.

From the fan fiction coupling of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenarys (Emilia Clarke) to back-to-back dragon battles with no notable (human) casualties, the truncated penultimate season has offered much in the way of elegant spectacle and little in the way of emotional resonance. It’s also been agonizingly predictable. Arya’s (Maisie Williams) opening assassination of House Frey may be the most successful surprise, and even her revelation felt inevitable as soon as the wine came out.
