In "Towers of Silence" Boyd visits the freight terminal, apparently at London Heathrow Airport. In the background, a Ryanair plane can be seen on the tarmac - Ryanair do not fly into or out of London Heathrow Airport. See more »
I'd give this series a 10 minus if I could. This series is so compelling, I lack the words to express it. And that's saying something for me.
We just finished viewing season six on BBC America, and I say with greatest admiration that I hope it comes back for as many seasons as the producers, actors and writers wish. You have a willing viewer, here.
I also wish BBC America would show the whole of each episode. Some of the jump cuts between scenes create periodic non sequitors. It appears as though parts of the narrative are shaved off to make room for advertisements.
Trevor Eve may be one of the best actors I've ever seen.
