A new TV series from the makers of Killing Eve starts in the UK tonight (6th December). Ragdoll is a thriller TV series based on the novel of the same name by Daniel Cole. Here’s everything you need to know.
What is Ragdoll about and is it worth watching?
By the sounds of it, this series isn’t for the faint-hearted. But then again, Killing Eve fans would expect as much.
The synopsis reads: “Disgraced detective DS Rose has just been reinstated to the London police when he and his colleagues, newly promoted DI Baxter and young American ingenue, DC Edmunds are called to a grim discovery in a block of flats.
“A 'Ragdoll' hangs from the ceiling, made up of six different body parts. When a hit list is released naming six more victims due to die, the team must race against time with the killer creating ever more ingenious methods to murder their victims. With a suspicious Edmunds looking into Rose's ever increasing erratic behaviour, Rose sets out on a secret investigation to find the killer before it's too late.”
You can watch the trailer below.
Reviewing the series, Rotten Tomatoes Top Critic and Sydney Morning Herald writer, Brad Newsome, said: “This dark but witty oddball serial-killer drama is just what you'd hope for from the producers of Killing Eve.”
