Southcliffe is a British drama series airing on Channel 4. Set in a fictional town on the North Kent Marshes, it employs a nonlinear narrative structure to tell the story of a series of shootings by a local man portrayed by Sean Harris, the cause of these shootings and the effects on the town and residents. It explores tragedy, grief, responsibility and redemption, as seen through the eyes of a journalist returning to the small town of his childhood, to cover the story of the tragedy, and those closest to the victims of the tragedy.

Taking on the subject matter of a local amok run but focusing primarly on the tragedy left behind is probably what holds the show back in the four episode setup. Some of the affected people develop a bit odd and we end with open questions and a general lack of knowledge of the perpetrator and his motifs (which is I guess partially intentional).
Being helmed by Sean Durkin (Martha Marcy May Marlene) and Tony Grisoni (Red Riding Trilogy) I expected it to be more consistent because it starts out quite good.
