FOR­TI­TUDE

Sky At­lantic, 9pm

Western Daily Press - - Today’s Tv -

JUST hear­ing a boot crunch on snow in this hor­ror Arc­tic saga sends a chill through me. With deadly par­a­sitic wasps, psy­chotic po­lar bears, freez­ing weather, ex­plod­ing he­li­copters and mur­der­ers on the loose, we’re not sure why any­one would live there.

Noth­ing good ever hap­pens in For­ti­tude and this third and fi­nal sea­son prom­ises to be no dif­fer­ent. There are only four episodes this time, but pre­pare for each one to pack a punch.

After the lynch­ing of gov­er­nor Er­ling Munk, there’s de­bate over his death.

The the­ory “He threw him­self out of his of­fice win­dow,” isn’t wash­ing with every­one.

Mean­while, Oslo despatches two new of­fi­cers to try to make sense of the an­ar­chy.

Sher­iff Dan An­der­ssen, played by the bril­liant Richard Dormer, con­tin­ues his de­scent into mad­ness. We’ve al­ready es­tab­lished that he’s barely hu­man any­more after his wasp en­counter.

He finds him­self go­ing head to head with the grief-stricken Michael Len­nox, played by Den­nis Quaid.
