Mads Mikkelsen: We want Hannibal to return for a fourth season

Hannibal is one of our favourite crime dramas. Its gloriously trippy, nightmarish retelling of the Hannibal Lecter story, starring Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy (among others), has, during its three series, pushed the boundaries of taste and credulity for US network dramas. Its charmed life seemed to come to an end last year when its…

Review: Hannibal (S1 E9/13), Wednesday 12th August, Sky Living

With Francis Dolarhyde established as the villain of the piece, and Hannibal Lecter almost having taken over Jack Crawford’s role as the investigator of the Tooth Fairy’s family murders, all the roles in Hannibal have been reversed; all save that of Will Graham, who still finds himself stricken with the ability to put himself in the mind…

Review: Hannibal (S3 E7/13), Wednesday 22nd July, Sky Living

Why did neither attacker follow through and make the kill? – because only…

Review: Hannibal (S3 E5/13), Wednesday 8th July, Sky Living

Hannibal marathon and social media event on the horizon

Hannibal is easily one of the most messed up shows we’ve ever seen. We did wonder what a prequel to The Silence Of The Lambs would look like (prequels can be a bit rubbish), but nothing prepared us for just how nightmarish it was. For this series to not only appear on a mainstream US…
