impressive BBC terrorist thriller
28 October 2006 | by (Belarus) – See all my reviews

Yes

Very professionally made BBC thriller, with excellent locations I think shot in London, Scotland, Paris.

It has good atmosphere, about the renegade from a terrorist cell (I think Eastern European in origin) who hides out in UK and has to get police protection.

The trademark of the terrorist group is the Skorpion machine pistol a Czech weapon.

The music was very good, too, and it had a memorable opening credits scene of a tarantula spider climbing over the Skorpion gun.

I hope one day it gets released on DVD.

Other BBC shows to put on DVD:

Blood Money The Cleopatras The Borgias Spyship Badger by Owl-Light

I don't know why they don't, they could make load of money if they did, probably due to some stupid UK copyright law.
