When Marine Nicolas Brody is hailed as a hero after he returns home from eight years of captivity in Iraq, intelligence officer Carrie Mathison is the only one who suspects that he may have been "turned".
Ms Piper is quality, her timing and playing to camera are excellent, a female Alfie?
What lets the program down is the 30 minute time slot, and this restricts the progression of the narrative. I would have liked to see more of the meeting between her agent and the girls. The lingering exterior shots are reminiscent of US series, and perhaps that is a future target for this show, however they just seemed like fillers.
The amount of information that the book and blogs provide, should easily fill the time, and a decent (or indecent) series.
Made me laugh, and the bit with the saddle, brave people. I hope they did not have too many takes, looks exhausting.
By and large a good attempt at a difficult subject, I wonder what Channel 4 would have done with the same book?
As for the aforementioned Ms Piper, sultry and naughty, very good. Watch it and laugh at how ridiculous we can all appear during sex.
