BBC Worldwide screened the first two episodes of the 6 part series at Dendy Cinemas followed by a Q&A featuring producer Emile Sherman, co-director Garth Davis, co-writer Gerard Lee and several cast members.
The big names, Campion, Elisabeth Moss, Holly Hunter and David Wenham were unable to attend, but the audience seemed impressed by the atmospheric story and the stunning landscapes of Queenstown, New Zealand.
With its mix of crime and moody characters, more than a few were likening it to Scandinavian drama The Killing.
Set to screen in late March on UKTV, it will screen on the Sundance Channel in the US around the same time and mid-year on the BBC.
Looks set to be a contender on the awards circuit….
It premieres on March 24.
