      First look images released from second series of Sky Atlantic's Fortitude

      https://corporate.sky.com/media-cent...tics-fortitude

      Sky Atlantic has today unveiled first look images from the set of the second series of Fortitude, an original British drama made by Sky.

      The danger-filled arctic thriller has been in production since January 2016 and these images are the first to come out of the shoot taking place in Iceland. The images feature key returning cast members Sofie Gråbøl (The Killing) and Richard Dormer (Game of Thrones) as well as Dennis Quaid (Far From Heaven) who is playing a new character in the second instalment of the show.

      With more chilling and fast moving plot twists, this ambitious horror thriller set against the stunning Arctic wilderness, is from the makers of the BAFTA winning Marvellous, Fifty Fathoms, and is co-produced by Pivot.
      Note: The other images are only available to registered press members

      Great news, not till later this year. So The Tunnel and GOT to watch before then
      One of those few series I had to watch many of the episodes at least two or three times to make sure I got the ongoing and complicated plot.
      So much great drama on sky channels now, puts the terrestrials to shame lately.

      Apart from 'The Night Manager', which was exceptional.

      Must admit, we did not watch that, it did not sound the sort of thing we would watch, not ever enjoyed spy stuff based on John le Carré. Now give me a good James Bond spy novel/film and I'm glued.
      We did try Maigret too on itv, and gave up after 20 mins, what a borefest.

      it was based on the novel.... that's about it. Screenwriters did a a very good job on bringing it up to date, also a different ending to the book, much better.

      With the BBC cutting their costs all the time, there doesn't seem to be enough stimulus for competition for the terrestrial based broadcasters at the moment.

      However Sky are facing more competition from the likes of Netflix who are able to stream all their content virtually around the globe without too much hassle. Sure they've recently quashed a lot of VPNs, but that doesn't mean you can't continue to watch a lot of their own original content.

      Much of the content available through Sky is also available on Netflix too.

      The same is also true for Amazon.

      Basically Sky has had to ramp up things in order to keep their customers from leaving.

      IMHO all this is good for us.

      I passed on it too initially but my dad recommended it and I "binge" watched the full series.
      It was much better than the reviews of the first episode had suggested.

      I believe further series with these characters are planned.
      There will be more "buzz" about it later in the year when it airs on AMC in USA.

      Three series in a year is hardly putting the terrestrials to shame!

      Did you watch 1992 on Sky Arts? I thought it was excellent.
      Hope there is a further series.

      Also watching Occupied from Sky On Demand.

      I'm not saying Sky is poor but there is so much good TV drama recently that there aren't enough hours in the day.

      I'm watching: Castle (Watch), Walking Dead (Fox), Talking Dead(Fox), Arrow (Sky1), The Flash(Sky1), Billions(Sky [soon]), Supernatural(More4?), Blindspot(Sky Living), The Blacklist(Sky Living), Expanse(SyFy [soon-hopefully]), Grimm(Watch), Stag(BBC2), Spin(More4?), Line of Duty(BBC2), Marvels Agents of Shield(CH4).

      I'm sure there's lots of other good things too. [TBH Arrow and The Flash have been boring recently, for me].

      I have a queue that is months worth long on my NAS from a variety of channels, I think I need a good 3 months of sickness to catch-up.

      It seems we have similar tastes! We dropped Arrow a while back and Flash never appealed. Castle was good but I think the scripts are getting a bit long winded now with the sub-plot going on for what seems like an eternity. The Blacklist is excellent, Grimm too. Very disappointed to see 'Person of Interest' being dropped, hopefully Amazon or NetFlix will pick it up.

      We like most of BBC4's Saturday night Skandi-noir output such as The Bridge, Trapped was excellent,the only series we have failed to get into is Inspector Montalbano.

      I think Sky's own output is very poor, the terrestrial channels produce far more quality drama.
