‘Don’t Talk to Strangers’ miniseries brings suspense and delves into secrets

Don't Talk to Strangers

The miniseries ‘Don’t Talk to Strangers’ is based on the work of Harlan Coben, who is a North American literary phenomenon with 75 million books sold around the world in 44 languages. His style is a “love it or hate it” type, with lots of twists and surprises. His narrative language works very well on screens. ‘Don’t Talk to Strangers’ is an example.

The production is based on the book of the same name by Coben, the miniseries with 8 chapters is a real delight to the viewer.


In a small English town where everyone knows everyone else, Adam Price (Richard Armitage) is the patriarch of a family in which everyone gets along very well. Things are going positively until a stranger (Hannah John-Kamen) approaches him to tell him a secret about Corinne (Dervla Kirwan), his wife, who, when confronted, ends up disappearing.

We also follow the story of detective Johanna Griffin (Siobhan Finneran), a woman who has just arrived and is about to retire. The stranger also visits Johanna’s friend Dervla Kirwan (Jennifer Saunders), and the initially unrelated events turn into something bigger.

At first, the viewer has no idea where the mysteries of the plot will end up. Written by Coben himself, the plot script works as a fitting, the pieces fit together and give new and deep directions to the plot.

The x point of the series is the curiosity to discover the secrets of that community. At a certain point, the plot begins to take on the air of a police thriller with Detective Griffin as the protagonist.

The film works urgently. Some things don’t seem to fit very well in the plot but in the end it ends up making sense. The script leaves nothing loose in the main plots, but it could be better, but that could change if there are other seasons.


‘Don’t Talk to Strangers’ is a sensational film. A well written and summarized series. That’s why it’s worth checking out this plot in its Youcine free apk. Download on your mobile, Android, iPhone, TV Box or Smart Tv and see this production and many others for free!
