A Quantam of Quirkes

This trailer is unofficial and it does contain SPOILERS, so be careful. On the other hand, many of the slightly spoilery details revealed in this trailer have no real context and you will probably forget them, so be brave! Or be careful. It is up to you.

As you know, I do not usually post unofficial stuff BUT we are all so hungry for Quirke info! I could not resist…



  1. I have read all the Quirke books so for me the trailer is just fantastic. Really love it.
    Thanks for sharing!

    PS Great music too!

  2. Love the period atmosphere that they have created.Have read many of Banville’s works over the years. I have now read all of the Benjamin Black series, where these haunted characters have been painstakingly developed and have grown over time. These are superbly crafted novels, where the real crimes are not always on the pathologist’s table, as he exposes the shocking underbelly of a repressed society in the fifties.

  3. OMG!!! That looks fantastic!! I can’t wait to see this programme. I’m reading “Christine Falls” at the moment and it looks like they’ve done a great job with the casting and are staying true to the book. :)

  4. Many thanks Moondreamer. have also read all the Benjamin Black books – very good, but the series looks absolutely stunning!

  5. It’s definitely worth watching!
