After a plane explodes over Washington D.C. panic begins to envelop the British embassy, and its ambassador to the U.S. Mark Brydon finds himself caught up in a potentially damaging diplomatic incident.
I have just finished watching this five-hour mini-series for the third time with increasing enjoyment each time. Undercover Heart is ostensibly about the search for the murderer of a prostitute but the main story concerns the relationships between three police detectives, Lois (Daniela Nardini), her husband Tom (Steven McIntosh) and his best mate Matt (Lennie James).
When Tom goes undercover to investigate the murder Lois and Matt start an affair with devastating consequences. Other leading characters in Undercover Heart include single parent Matt's wise beyond her years little daughter, a Detective Inspector whose bad back is aggravated by the stress his team frequently put him under and two terrifying pimps who Tom has to get close to and who both are easily capable of murder.
The acting is brilliant, the tension palpable and the story well brought to a satisfying conclusion. I urge you to see Undercover Heart if you get the chance.
