Instead of a dead body found on the border of a bridge joining two nations, this time it’s a corpse in the tunnel in the Channel Tunnel (alas it seems they no longer refer to it as the ‘chunnel.’)
This is a 10 episode drama from KUDOS in association with CANAL+ Creation Originale, Shine Group and France Films and British Sky Broadcasting.
America also remade The Bridge set between Texas and Mexico.
The Tunnel is set against the backdrop of Europe in crisis. When a prominent French politician is found dead on the border between the UK and France, detectives Karl Roebuck (Stephen Dillane ) and Elise Wassermann (Clémence Poésyare) sent to investigate on behalf of their respective countries.
The case takes a surreal turn when a shocking discovery is made at the crime scene, forcing the French and British police into an uneasy partnership. As the serial killer uses ever more elaborate and ingenious methods to highlight the moral bankruptcy of modern society, Karl and Elise are drawn deeper into his increasingly personal agenda.
