Caught up with the first episode last night, I thought it might be a load of rubbish like the Richard Gere one on BBC2, but pleasantly surprised, I'll stick with it for sure. Fans of the recent Icelandic series will be pleased to see the male lead (largish chap) in this, he was in "The Missing" with Baptiste a while back as well. I think I may have read the "The Widow" also has the same writers as "The Missing". Anyway it's worth giving it a go if you haven't watched it yet.

I watched the first episode but can't say I liked it, I might give it another go at some point as I did like Missing.

Kate Beckinsale is a rubbish actress - or it's a rubbish script - or both! Won't be watching Episode 3. I see there are 8 episodes in all!!

I watched the first episode but fell asleep last night. I have to confess to being a little disappointed as I thought it was based on a book I read a few weeks ago called The Disappeared which has a sub title of the Widow. It's a very similar storyline but not the same so it's frustrating - will keep watching though.

Glad it's over. Too much jumping about in different time zones. Very confusing at times.

What a load of tosh! How did KB manage to look bandbox fresh with one T shirt, when her luggage was stolen at the airport! It was so awful that I had to watch to the end to see if it could get any worse.
It did.

I had recorded all the episodes, to binge watch, but after seeing the comments made here, I deleted the lot without bothering.
Sounds as though I made the right decision.

I started to watch it and wasn’t impressed but OH liked it so I tried again and really started to enjoy it and wanted to know how it would end. Strangely, it didn’t matter that I had missed the first few episodes.
