Benidorm is a metaphor for today’s international politics and the resulting human condition. The swingers represent Norway and Sweden, Mateo is essentially a precognition of the Trump administration (or at least who they think they are) and Les/ley is clearly Putin. Geof is certainly a depiction of either Australia or South Africa, and Gavin+Paul represent the east. Madge, is almost without a doubt Kim Jong-Un/Il, although she may also be just orange enough to be Trump.
Who told you this?

A bit confused by this one - it's a Danish remake of the 2011 Danish series ?

The original Danish or the remade Danish ?
The 2011 one. The 2019 one seems to have a different plot. Not sure if it's a remake.

Edit: Confirmed.

With Darkness: Those Who Kill, the show makes its return with a new look, a new cast and a new killer on the loose.

Can confirm that Darkness: Those Who Kill 2019 has subs :)

Hopefully the 2011 one gets "re-released" now.

Very intriguing. 8/10
Good to know.

Watching Der Pass at the moment. Very good indeed.

Interesting note: I am incredibly impressed with the soundtrack. Very powerful and dramatic, fitting in perfectly with the scenery and the moment, every time.

Then I noticed 2 magic words in the credits: Hans Zimmer
