In the news: Durham County debuts Monday

From John Doyle of the Globe and Mail – see second-last item:

  • Downward dog, upward profit
    “This six-part Canadian crime drama, about an emotionally damaged homicide detective (Hugh Dillon) hunting a serial killer, and possibly a copycat killer, is as moody as all get-out. In style and tone, it is clearly influenced by such HBO dramas as Six Feet Under and The Sopranos. Perhaps too much so. Visually sumptuous and adult, it is decidedly grim and seethes with male rage. The opening episode is rich, compelling and deeply disquieting drama.”
