It’s going to be a busy first month of 2019, with a host of new series hitting our screen.
One of them is Sky Atlantic’s Tin Star, which received a mixed response when it aired last year. However, it bears watching, not least for Tim Roth’s excellent performance.
The first series ended with Police Chief Jim (Roth) and his family destroyed by the chaos surrounding Jim and his alter-ego Jack, and season two will pick up with Jim and his grieving and shell-shocked family in the wilderness of the Rockies as they struggle to come to terms with their ordeal.
Series two will also see Anna (Abigail Lawrie) taken into the care of the religious Nickel family, but she will soon learn they are harbouring some dark secrets, and it’s not long before Anna is forced to seek her father’s help.
In order to earn forgiveness, atone for his sins and save his family and himself, Jim will also have to form an ‘uneasy’ alliance.
Tin Star (series 2): Thursday 24th January, 9pm, Sky Atlantic
