Jamie Dornan’s retrograde amnesiac Paul Spector, also an impressive serial killer, has been delivered to secure unit with other morally (and legally) dubious characters. One of these inmates, Mark Bailey, befriends him and does appear to have either a man crush on Spector or an actual crush. Being a schizophrenic, it could be both.
The main offending issue here is the mundane minutiae that writer and creator Allan Cubitt is willing to go into. The first installment’s tedious medical jargon and procedural scenes subside thankfully as the ‘Belfast Strangler’ Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan) regains his health. But these are replaced with endless conversations in police offices and bureaucracy for a number of episodes, sometimes retreading the closing moments of the previous season.
