Hannibal (NBC 2013, Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen)

Published

on


Crime drama series. Based on the books by Thomas Harris Hannibal follows the dynamic between Special Agent Will Graham who is helped on his cases by supremely clever forensic psychiatrist Dr Hannibal Lector.

This prequel works so well because we know the character of Hannibal Lector so well – we know the man he is destined to turn into. A horrifying serial killer who will look a lot like Anthony Hopkins!

This is a hard hitting show, even for a network series.
