Basking in the Springbok victory at the Rugby World Cup, Devil’s Peak premiered the day after the historic win. We can’t say this enough: congratulations Bokke! 🎉 Moving onto M-Net matters, here’s a quick snapshot into Devil’s Peak: it is a crime drama, based on Deon Meyer’s book of the same name, featuring detective Benny Griessel whose life intersects with a vigilante Thobela Mpayipheli.
Alright, now that everyone is up to speed, this is what you had to say on social media about the first episode.
On Facebook, there’s been praise for the show. 🙏

On X, formerly Twitter, there were also positive comments. 😁
As we get into episode 2, there are so many intriguing questions: What will Thobela do next? Is he the Batman Cape Town needs? What will become of detective Benny, case wise and his drinking? Will Anna stand her ground? What will the police do after a loss of one of their own? Keep watching to see this enthralling tapestry unravel and come together at the same time.
