Series 1 - 8. Snow Maiden

Snow Maiden
Radio Times
Review by:
Alison Graham

Hunted has been shameless in its use of sickly scenes with whey-faced children. Yes, people are routinely bashed to bits. But just go “aaah” as tough Sam Hunter sits on the bed of motherless moppet Eddie and reads him her favourite story as her eyes become damp with unshed tears for her own dead mum.

Blah! Still, never mind, it’s nearly over. In the final episode, one in which I am sure you expect everything in this corkscrew thriller to be explained, Sam’s flashbacks to her childhood become more acutely painful. Still, she has a job to do. “It ends today, Sam,” she is told. Then someone says, “We need to talk.” Which is never a good thing.
