Rellik is a British television show created by brothers Harry and Jack Williams that premiered on Cinemax in 2017. The show stars Richard Dormer as Gabriel Markham, a detective struggling to solve a string of murders while dealing with the traumatic aftermath of being attacked by the serial killer he’s trying to catch. Jodi Balfour and Kieran Bew also star as other detectives working on the case.

One of the unique aspects of Rellik is its non-linear storytelling style. The first episode begins with a shocking and unexplained event, and subsequent episodes work backwards in time to unravel the events leading up to it. This means that by the end of the season, viewers have a full understanding of what happened, but they experience the story in a somewhat jumbled order.

The show also explores themes of memory, trauma, and revenge. As Detective Markham tries to track down the killer, he grapples with his own PTSD and the lingering effects of the attack that almost killed him. His obsession with the killer stems in part from a desire for revenge, as well as a fear that the killer may come after him again.

The show was praised for its gritty and realistic portrayal of police work and for its impressive performances, particularly by Dormer as Markham. The cinematography was also notable, with dark and moody lighting and interesting framing choices adding to the show’s overall sense of unease.

One criticism of the show was that its non-linear narrative style sometimes made it difficult to keep track of the timeline of events. Some viewers found themselves confused by the show’s structure, as dates and events jumped around in time from episode to episode.

Overall, Rellik is a well-crafted and suspenseful crime drama that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats. Its unique approach to storytelling and complex characters make it a standout in the crowded field of police procedurals.

Rellik is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (6 episodes). The series first aired on September 11, 2017.
