Following his roles over the last decades in things like; Doctor Who, Broadchurch, and Good Omens, David Tennant is firmly established as one of the finest actors in Britain, so anything he is in is sure to attract attention.

This is the main reason I watched Deadwater Fell, and by the end of the show, he is the only reason to have watched it.

It starts off well, with a horrific tragedy in a small town and seemingly a mystery about to unfold about how the events happen.

However, throughout the show’s 4 episodes, not one twist occurs and the ending is exactly as we are constantly told throughout the show that it was going to be.

This could have worked if instead we got a deep exploration of why a man would commit this horrific act, but we don’t really, we just get a cliched excuse.

The performances are strong and Tennant especially is very menacing, but the ending really means the whole show never really worked, even when you initially thought it did.

Rating = 2.5/5
