People Are Calling New Netflix Crime Series 'The Stranger' A 'Mind F*ck'
The thriller takes place over eight, hour-long episodes and despite only landing on Netflix on Thursday 30th January many have rushed to binge the entire show in one sitting.
Many viewers who have watched the series, based on a novel by the master of mystery thrillers Harlan Coben, are dubbing it 'a total mind f***' and 'totally addictive'.
The Stranger centres on the life of Adam Price (Richard Armitage) and his picture perfect family setup. But, when an unknown stranger reveals that his wife may have been keeping a dark secret from him, Adam goes on an obsessive quest to discover the truth.
Viewers were particularly gripped by the constant stream of twists and turns, with one writing: "The plot twists had me shook at the end of every episode".

While the original book was set in the states, the series was shot around Manchester and, while it's not specified that is where it is set, many of the cast have Northern accents.
And there have also been some changes to the plot of the book, with series co-creator, Danny Brocklehurst, confirming that the start and end of the TV series are similar to the story of the original book, but some of the middle has been changed.
With the cold, dark nights sticking around for a little while, this is a Netflix binge we're totally going to be getting stuck in to. And we recommend you do the same!
