The Responder is an extremely tense TV series created by BBC in the UK. It was released in 2022, and it has received fantastic reviews both online and offline. Morgan Freeman plays the main role of a corrupt police officer. Many people will say that Morgan Freeman and his role is a good enough reason in itself to stream The Responder online. The fact that the story is good should just come as a bonus. But, how and where can you stream The Responder online?
I haven’t streamed The Responder myself (yet), but as I have been reading about it, this has now earned itself a spot on my list of TV series that I want to stream. Before I get to The Responder, I have to finish a Netflix series I am currently watching, and then I want to stream the second season of Vienna Blood online. But, as I will finish those, I am ready to stream The Responder online. But, how can it be done?
It is easy to stream The Responder online.
There are currently two ways in which you can stream The Responder online. The first option is extremely easy, and the second option is easy as well, and that will also give you access to lots of other content online, including Vienna Blood and more. The great thing is that the tool needed for both options is the same, meaning that if you follow the instructions here, you will get access to both solutions.

The Responder online – Method 1.
The easiest way to stream The Responder online with Surfshark is by opening the Surfshark application and connecting to a server in Norway.
When you have connected to a server in Norway, go to the NRK website.
Since you have a Norwegian IP address, you will immediately be able to stream the six episodes of The Responder on the NRK website in Norway. It is completely free and you do not even have to register a user for this to work.
Now you can select which episode you would like to stream and you are good to go. You can also stream lots of other content from the NRK library in Norway using this method. It is also possible to watch the NRK live stream with Surfshark no matter where you are in the world.
The Responder online – Method 2.
Once again you will use the Surfshark application but this time you will connect to a server in the United Kingdom. This will give you a UK IP address and it will make you able to stream all the episodes of the show on BBC iPlayer in the UK. Here you can also stream Doctor Who, Killing Eve, Vienna Blood, Line of Duty, Pretty Little Liars, Peaky Blinders, and lots of other fantastic BBC productions.
When you have connected to a Surfshark server in the UK, do the following.
- Visit the BBC website and find The Responder.
- Create a brand new BBC user on the website (free). Register your user with a ZIP code in the UK.
- Confirm your email address after registration and log in to the website with your credentials.
- You are now ready to stream The Responder on the BBC website with Surfshark.
As you click the play button the first time, you might be asked whether you have a TV license or not. Simply answer yes to that question and you are ready to stream The Responder on BBC iPlayer, no matter where you are in the world.
Here I am watching The Responder on the BBC website using the VPN services of Surfshark.
When you have streamed The Responder in full, look around at BBC iPlayer to find other interesting content. If you have finished all the stuff you are interested in on BBC iPlayer, head over to Netflix. You can use Surfshark to watch content in more than 15 Netflix countries. If you connect to a server in Japan, you can stream all the content on Japanese Netflix, including lots of anime content. You can also connect to a server in the USA or in Canada to stream the local Netflix content of those countries.
These are just a few examples of what you can do with your Surfshark subscription. Have fun!
What do the viewers think of The Responder?
I have read a lot of fantastic reviews of The Responder. Not only do the average viewer like the series, but the professional critics’ are extremely positive. Just take a look at the screenshot below from the Rotten Tomatoes in which the series has a 100% score based on 21 professional ratings from critics.
As you can see, the normal audience might not be as enthusiastic as the professional critics’, but one shouldn’t think too much based on 19 user ratings (as can be seen above). What about IMDb? More than 8000 people have shared their thoughts and ratings of The Responder there, and below you can see the results.
Above you can see that it has a rating of 7.4/10 on IMDb, which is similar to a 74% score on Rotten Tomatoes. It might not be the highest score, but I wouldn’t really give that too much though. I have often loved movies and TV series with scores below 50%, and I have often hated movies and TV series with high scores. The best example is La La Land which has a great score on Rotten Tomatoes, but I never even managed to finish the movie.
The question is rather about whether you like British crime series such as this one? Have you seen Line of Duty and Bodyguard? Did you like them? If the answer to the question is yes, I do believe The Responder is a TV series that you should definitely give a chance. There are only six episodes in total each lasting approximately 50 minutes, meaning that it will only take 300 minutes of your life (5 hours) if you decide to stream it all.
Have you seen The Responder? How did you like it? Was it worth the time? I would love to read your thoughts about the TV series.
