‘Fortitude’ Review: Pivot’s Arctic Thriller Needs To Warm Up Says Dominic Patten

There’s going to be an Arctic chill tonight on TV with the 10 PM debut of Fortitude on Pivot. As my video review above says, the 12-episode series from Low Winter Sun creator Simon Donald has a lot of potential and some amazing cast members in Michael Gambon, Christopher Eccleston and Stanley Tucci plus polar bears. The flipside is it too often moves at a glacial pace.

A co-production between Pivot and Sky Atlantic, the murder mystery Fortitude is the first scripted drama for the nearly 2-year old cable channel.

So the question is will you be watching Fortitude tonight? Take a look at my review and tell us what you think of it and the show.
