The Tunnel, Season 2 on PBS: Sabotage

June 16, 2017

UPDATE AUGUST 29, 2017

The Tunnel’s uneasy duo – the meticulous and socially awkward French Commander Elise Wasserman, and terse but brilliant English Detective Chief Inspector (DCI) Karl Roebuck – reunite to investigate the case of a French couple abducted from the Eurotunnel, leaving behind their traumatized young daughter. The case becomes complicated when a plane carrying British and French passengers plunges into the English Channel, killing everyone on board.

As Karl and Elise pick their way through the clues thrown up by a vast field of debris, they are confronted with sinister and complicated forces at play. If you’re unfamiliar with The Tunnel, get a quick briefing with The Tunnel on PBS: What American Audiences Should Know.
