The excellent finale last night was indeed a fine conclusion to super series. Good to see the beeb produce yet more high quality and original programming.
As seems to be the way in all TV and Film these days there was a classic twist - you never saw this one coming.
Terrific performances by the lead players, I was especially impressed by Ben Daniels (Brocklehurst) whose last contribution was in 'Doom'and the lamentable 'Cutting It', again on the BBC.
A tense and gripping script which had me hooked from the start and did not let up the entire 6 episodes, and some of the political manoeuvring was an art to behold. (more 'West Wing' than 'Yes Minister') Great bit of drama I'd definitely watch again.
