Season 2 Premiere:
Matt Roush says...
The intense Gallic missing-persons specialist Julien Baptiste (Tchéky Karyo) has retired as the second season of the Missing spinoff begins. But he’s still on the hunt, seeking purpose as he heads to Budapest to offer his services to prickly British ambassador Emma Chambers (the sensational Fiona Shaw), whose family has gone missing in the Hungarian mountains on a hiking vacation. The shocks come quickly and often in a thriller that’s unusually grim and action-driven by Masterpiece Mystery! standards. Few actors can deliver a primal scream with the power of Shaw, who gets to howl in rage and despair in nearly every episode.
