Sofie Grabol, Christopher Eccleston and Stanley Tucci star in first full trailer for Fortitude

Michael Gambon, Richard Dormer, Jessica Raine and Sienna Guillory are also among the star-studded cast for the Sky Atlantic drama set to air in 2015

We’ve been excited about Fortitude for a good, long while. First a star-studded cast made up of Stanley Tucci, Michael Gambon, Sofie Grabol, Christopher Eccleston, Jessica Raine and more were announced back in January. And now, following a brief teaser earlier this month, we’ve got our hands on the 12-part drama’s first full trailer. 


Set in the snowy community of Fortitude – dubbed “one of the safest towns on earth” – the drama will chart the fallout of a mysterious murder. Game of Thrones actor Richard Dormer and Tucci will play the Arctic town’s sheriff and a detective who are trying to make sense of the violent death. 

And for once, Grabol won’t be solving any crimes – she’ll play the town’s Governor whose regeneration plans are scuppered by the murder – while former Doctor Who star Christopher Eccleston stars as an English scientist. 

Check out the trailer below…
