Turnbull had actually cheated two Oxford colleges in his computer scam and had received death threats. Turnbull is everything Lewis dislikes but he grits his teeth does the job.

I love this show. It Is rather plodding sometimes.However, it makes up for it in detail of the subject of the plot.I found this story quite interesting and enjoyable, with all the plot twists and guessing. All the actors are pleasing to the eye too. As for Laurence Fox, he seems to have some sort of problem with how he talks. After pondering on this, I think the problem is too many teeth packed into his mouth. If he were to remove the back tooth, last ones at the back of his mouth, upper and lower ones on each side, it would give his other teeth room to spread out, and the tightness would disappear. Then I am sure he would speak quite evenly and more under-standarbly.
