All of the episodes are out now. Just finished binge watching the whole thing and absolutely loved it. Relentlessly grim yet utterly engrosing from beginning to end.

SPOILER:
Hickey made for a memorable villain - the kind you really hate and can't wait to see die. The show changes his demise to a more crowdpleasing one and I didn't mind at all.

I loved the final shot with the child sitting beside Crozier as he hunts for seal, having run away in fear when they first met. A nicely poetic conclusion and a piece of creative license that I felt had been more than earned after the excellent storytelling that had preceeded it.

Tbh, the story would have been gruelling enough even without the creature.

A question about the creature and the ending.....

SPOILER:
Did the creature die of wounds or was Hickey's tongue poisonous to it?

The child at the end was that the Captains child by the Eskimo woman who had no tongue?

SPOILER:
It isn't explicitly stated what killed the creature. It could have been the lead poisoning that it had been ingesting for months, the poison that Mr Goodsir swallowed to kill his captors, Mr Blanky's fork armour, Hickey's soul being too foul or being choked by Crozier with the chain in its throat. Or a combination of those factors.

The child at the end looked too old to be Crozier's (given that it was only two years later). I assumed that it was the same child that had run away when he first entered the camp. He had been accepted by the tribe and was now hunting seals with the child by his side, no longer afraid of him as he had become one of them.

Renewed for a second season.

Quote:
The next iteration, based on an idea by Borenstein, will be set during World War II and center on an uncanny specter that menaces a Japanese-American community from its home in Southern California to the internment camps to the war in the Pacific.

Hmmm...

Just finished this, nice different series! Which ran at it's own pace.

And pretty much what Gareth said in his spoilers! Hopefully this won't suffer from Season 2 Syndrome.

Really like the first series, very well acted, and the setting for the second series seems interesting, looking forward to it.

The only link from first to second series, is that there is some terror involved LOL :D

PS...from other websites most people thought the monster in the first series was some sort of cross between a man and a polar bear, as it was intelligent as well as vicious. 

I wonder what we will get in the second series, a cross between a man and chicken noodle soup, he he.

Just catching up with this now, a superb and very English TV series - just wondering if the whole thing is a metaphor for Brexit, it seems everything else these days is meant to be...

Wow, talk about late for the party. I had totally forgotten about this series, and still awaiting the next.

Anyway, you should enjoy the horror of the horror.
