Although the show is well written, its main selling point is that it revolves around two standout performances. As Norman, Freddie Highmore does a terrific job of foreshadowing the monster he will eventually become (taxidermy, anyone?) while remaining sweet and sympathetic throughout. He brings a classmate flowers when her father ends up in hospital, but he is also becoming aware that there is something wrong with him. "Sometimes you hear and you see things that aren't there," explains Norma. "It's like some kind of trance or something." A second series was commissioned on 18 August 2014.

As TV writer Sally Wainwright was born in Huddersfield and brought up in Sowerby Bridge, it is perhaps unsurprising that Happy Valley is set in Yorkshire. The majority of the BBC show, which first aired in 2014, was filmed in Calder Valley which encompasses picturesque and charming towns such as Todmorden, Hebden Bridge and Sowerby Bridge. You can catch the premiere of Happy Valley Season 3 when you sign up toFoxtel Now. Previous episodes from Happy Valley Season 1 and Happy Valley Season 2 are also available on demand. Harrelson's Marty Hart is much more straight-down-the-line: a heavy-drinking cop with a brow that remains furrowed whether he's scratching around for answers, shaking off the last of a hangover or enduring many a long car journey with Cohle, listening to his theory that the world is "one ghetto – a giant gutter in outer space".
