The Stranger (Netflix)

Ok, Ok, I am a year late to the party, but if I am, I suspect you might be too, and I wouldn’t want you to miss out. My partner and I have very different TV viewing habits but just occasionally we find a series we watch together. And that’s what happened with The Stranger, which we’ve watched over the last week. Let’s put it this way. I enjoyed it more than he did. It flagged a bit in episodes two and three but after that it was knicker-gripping. And in a good way.

The Stranger is a TV adaptation of Harlan Coben’s nobel of the same name. Sometimes TV adaptations stray very much from the original work and are pale imitations. This one didn’t and isn’t.
