A prisoner called Bowden is approached in prison by an old school friend. He is soon to be released and is offered a well-paid job that is obviously crooked. As he wants to go straight, he reports the approach to the prison governor. M9 wants to know what the crime is to be so Drake takes the place of the prisoner. After his release from prison, he is approached by a solicitor and offered £1000 to join The Order, which he finds is a terrorist training organisation that is intent on killing people it considers a danger to society.

Pretty good.
31 December 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode begins with a prisoner being approached by Drake. It seems that someone wants this soon to be released prisoner to do some sort of illegal job--but exactly what is uncertain. So, Drake (who, incidentally, looks NOTHING LIKE THE PRISONER) agrees to take his place and infiltrate.

Eventually, Drake and four others arrive at a really nice estate. There they learn that 'The Order' is an organization with strong fascist/nationalistic leanings--a secret group within the UK and possibly throughout the world. As for the five new hires, their jobs are to be assassins and eliminate folks who The Order thinks are threats to the West.

The show's concept is exceptional and I really appreciated the idea of a far-right organization secretly swaying politics. However, the show did have a couple shortcomings. I mentioned that Drake looked nothing like the guy he was replacing. The other problem was the ending--it was just too simple and easy. Still, a fascinating show regardless.
