Interview: The Tunnel returns to our TV screens

After a successful first run, The Tunnel is back with an original story for the second series. The show’s stars, and writer Ben Richards, tell Keeley Bolger about the new plots, social awkwardness and how a Brexit might affect the future of co-productions

Ben Richards is exasperated at the criticism levelled at his drama The Tunnel, which is a remake of Swedish show The Bridge.

“I was sent season one of The Bridge by a producer, who said, ‘This is an amazing Scandinavian show, no one’s going to watch it, let’s do a remake of it’,” explains the TV writer, also known for his work on Spooks.

“This is why I get p***ed off when people go, ‘Why did they do a remake of a hugely successful Scandinavian import?’ Well, it wasn’t a hugely successful Scandinavian import at the time.

“Pretty much like with Homeland and the Israeli show [it was based on]. Nobody had heard of it before they did the remake.”

INTERVIEW: Harry Potter star Clémence Poésy on The Tunnel series 2, working with Stephen Dillane and France’s newfound love of television

Actress Clémence Poésy is the epitome of everything we Brits think of as French: classically, effortlessly chic and with that impossible-to-replicate aura of ‘cool’ about her. She’s a familiar and much-loved face in Britain, after her international breakthrough role in a little-known franchise called Harry Potter. She played Fleur Delacour, initially one of Harry’s competitors in an inter-school magic tournament and his later kick-ass sister-in-law.

As well as Potter, Poésy has starred alongside Colin Farrell and Potter co-star Brendan Gleeson as the Belgian criminal Chloë Villette in acclaimed 2008 dark comedy In Bruges. She also portrayed Rana, the lover of adventurer Aron Ralston (played by James Franco) in the six-time Oscar nominated 127 Hours in 2010.

Her part in Sky Atlantic’s 2013 hit The Tunnel (an Anglo-French remake of The Bridge) saw her heralded by critics for her performance as Elise Wasserman, the no-nonsense, eccentric partner to Stephen Dillane’s everyman Karl Roebuck. We sat down with Poésy at a recent press day in London to discuss the new series of The Tunnel over breakfast.
