The episode that makes you like the IRA
6 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this episode a lot, but admit that I ended it wishing that the SAS team were the ones lying dead on the floor and the IRA team were the ones to walk away. This may not have been the affect intended, but it made a pleasant change.

Ross Kemp was his usual annoying self, and his presence is the main reason it didn't get a 10. But I was expecting a story with less subtlety than this, particularly in light of the 'war on terror', so I was pleased. I was particularly struck by the fact that the only character who appeared to have any concern for justice at all was the IRA rookie. (A fantastic performance by Damian O'Hare). As a result of this, rather than being a straightforward tale of SAS superiority, the episode actually made me think. I'm impressed!
