2015's Hottest New Shows

Fortitude preview

Fortitude, the new show on Sky Atlantic by Low Winter Sun scribe Simon Donald, follows the inhabitants of the titular town as the first violent crime in the history of the community takes place. Before this it was billed as the safest place on Earth, now Stanley Tucci’s DCI Morton is in town to investigate the killing. Sky Atlantic have graciously made a preview available, starring Richard Dormer and the legendary Michael Gambon. This clip gives you a sense of the unease that undercuts the so-called “Safest Place on Earth.” The series also stars former Doctor Who Christopher Eccleston and The Killing’s Sofie Gråbøl. Fortitude comes to Sky Atlantic in January.
