I imagine that I am not the only one who is gripped by The Bridge. These Scandi dramas (Killing, Borgen etc.,) are so watchable and yet again I am loving my little dose of crime drama in subtitles on a far too short weekly basis. Which surprises me as I have never really watched the home grown crime stuff.....have never watched a Morse, a Midsomer Murder, Wire in the Blood, Scott and Bailey, Silent Witness, New Tricks, CSI type thing etc., I just seemed to gravitate more to the corset and carriage or soaps that I liked.
Theis in the Killing and Philip the PM's husband in Borgen were, to my eye, very sexy and Martin in the Bridge is now ticking that box very nicely thank you very much......not handsome or traditionally leading man, but real looking and very fanciable.....the sort you would want in your lifeboat if push came to shove. Or is it only me that finds them sexy?
The acting is great too, and of course now I am mad keen on visiting that part of the world for a look around. Which is on the agenda for 'sometime' as we have just booked a midweek break for 2 nights on the Isle Of Wight...which I am looking forward to.......no need for subtitles there eh?
