J'adore this series. All the old faithful's are back in action.

Can't wait. Saturday 30th December. Channel Four.

Don't you mean BBC4?

LouiseBrooks Fri 29-Dec-17 21:22:45

I can't wait! But it isn't the same without lovely Pierre.

DoctorTwo Sat 30-Dec-17 02:52:18

Can't wait! I get my fix of the gorgeous Laure Berthaud.

Elendon Sat 30-Dec-17 09:44:21

Sorry, of course it's BBC 4 (and only on BBC 4)

I love Josephine - it looks a little dark for her if the clips are anything to go by.

DoctorTwo Sat 30-Dec-17 22:04:53

Holy shit, that was dark!

LaurelHolly Sat 30-Dec-17 23:42:50

It certainly had 'some scenes that may upset some viewers', but I'm so glad it's back. Love the Laure-Gilou relationship. Can't work out if he loves her romantically or platonically. Wonder if he knows!? grin

Lisette40 Sat 30-Dec-17 23:46:13

Yeah, it had that warning and cut to a gruesome scene immediately.

It's great that it's back. I love Juge Roban.

I was completely engrossed.

Elendon Sun 31-Dec-17 09:30:09

Wow, that was dark and sinister. Especially the parallels between the murder of the father and the murder of the police man.

The scenes with Laure and her baby are most moving. It must be incredibly stressful. (And are not the HCPs brilliant?)

It was such a treat to realise this was on last night.

I have a little crush on Girou. I have a question but not sure if it's spoilerish.

Optimist1 Mon 01-Jan-18 09:47:35

I watched this for the first time on Saturday but haven't seen previous series. If anyone could fill me in on any back story I need to know I'd be grateful!

Am I right in thinking that Girou's girlfriend is connected with the criminals in the last case the team were investigating? Wouldn't he have to declare that to his boss if they moved in together?

BradleyPooper Mon 01-Jan-18 09:51:00

Can't wait, been trying to find it since it aired on French TV a few months ago...

Lisette40 Mon 01-Jan-18 10:36:18

Yes, Gilou's girlfriend was connected to a police informer/ crook. Knowing Gilou, he probably should have declared it but has decided not to. He's not a by the book cop.

Optimist1 Mon 01-Jan-18 11:00:41

Thanks, Lisette. Seems a very similar character to the cop he played in Beautiful Bodies and just as attractive !

Optimist1 Mon 01-Jan-18 11:02:56

I mean Dead Beautiful, of course - bit of a brain fail here! grin

Muffinbutton Mon 01-Jan-18 11:06:36

So glad this is back on. Love love love Spiral. Great characters and great storylines.

Lisette40 Mon 01-Jan-18 11:08:21

optimist grinwink

Deux Mon 01-Jan-18 21:51:51

What did Gilou find in the punch bag at the end? Was it a lighter?

Lisette40 Mon 01-Jan-18 22:42:00

Gold bars. I was yelling 'Don't Gilou' but did he listen!? I have a soft spot for him too. He wants more than just the tight knit family at the Police. He'd like a life beyond that. Mind you Tintin has had difficulties balancing it all.

But Gilou's not by-the-book. He's a proper street cop.

Deux Mon 01-Jan-18 23:27:26

Oh wow, I didn't realise it was gold. He really needs to ditch Cindy and come find me. 😀

wowfudge Wed 03-Jan-18 12:41:13

I think Cindy is playing him - he shouldn't move in with her. He's being used by her and Djibril.

Anyway - it's brilliant. I watched both episodes last night.

LooseAtTheSeams Wed 03-Jan-18 13:14:39

Agree Wowfudge - poor Gilou!
Caught up with first two episodes and totally hooked again!

Elendon Wed 03-Jan-18 14:40:57

Gilou found a bar of gold (quarter bar) and then pocketed it. He's naughty for doing this, it means he is corrupt. I still think he's very sexy though

wowfudge Wed 03-Jan-18 15:15:24

It was a gold coloured Zippo type lighter, wasn't it?

wowfudge Wed 03-Jan-18 15:20:47

No - it was a gold ingot in a velvet bag; just re-watched on iplayer. He's pocketed that to be able to afford the new flat...
