"The Terror" now on Amazon

I don't do "box sets" as they take too much time commitment, but I am very glad I made an exception for 2018 period drama The Terror in the early weeks of lockdown. Ciaran Hinds and Jared Harris take the lead in a claustrophobic nautical psychological horror based on the 2007 Dan Simmons novel about the infamous 1840s voyage to the North West Passage, from which Banbridge man Captain Francis Crozier (played by Harris; Wikipedia here) never returned - the ships and crew were never seen again. Harris' accent drifts up and down the A1 and M1 between Banbridge and Dublin across the ten episodes, but it's gripping stuff.
