‘We Hunt Together’ Preview
This six-episode U.K. import is described as a “gripping twist on a classic cat-and-mouse story” that “explores the intoxication of sexual attraction and the dangerous power of emotional manipulation. As two conflicted detectives track down a pair of deadly killers, the series reveals how finding a volatile form of solace in another can have dire consequences.”
When the series starts, “The story begins with the collision of two extraordinary people; Baba, played by Dipo Ola, a former child soldier desperate to suppress his violent conditioning, and Freddy, played by Hermione Corfield, a magnetic and disarmingly charming free spirit. When Baba rescues Freddy from an attack following a date that has turned sour, something dark is ignited in them both.
“Two star-crossed killers are on the loose with two dysfunctional detectives in hot pursuit. DS Lola Franks, played by the brilliant Eve Myles, and DI Jackson Mendy, played by BAFTA-nominated Babou Ceesay, have to come to terms with their mismatched partnership and polar opposite outlooks on the culpability of the criminal mind as they try to outsmart the killers.”
In a review of the U.K. airing last fall, MSN writes, “This was odd couple versus odd couple. Which pairing would outsmart the other? And which were we supposed to be rooting for? This six-parter was written by Gaby Hull, creator of ITV’s university drama Cheat. This had a similarly attention-grabbing set-up, full of moral murk and psychological intrigue.
“Myles is always excellent, as she demonstrated in Torchwood, Broadchurch and Keeping Faith, but even she was outshone by Corfield and Ceesay. As the femme fatale, Corfield was mercurial, manipulative and disarmingly charismatic. Ceesay, who was BAFTA-nominated for Damilola, Our Loved Boy, had natural screen presence, palpable intelligence and brought to mind Peter Falk’s Lieutenant Columbo. He even said ‘Just one more thing…’ before he left the room.
“The cast’s skilful performances compensated for a rather overwrought and occasionally clumsy script, a little too much in love with its own literary references and stagey speechifying. It’s refreshing when new dramas dare to be different, just as long as they don’t tip over into hokey, po-faced pretentiousness.”
We Hunt Together airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime.
