Excellent, 2 July 2013
Author: blanche-2 from United States

"Wired" is a wonderful TV miniseries from England, starring Jodie Whittaker and Toby Stevens.

Whittaker plays a not totally honest bank worker, Louise Evans, whose best friend involves her in a large-scale fraud operation. She is to set up a false bank account for a tycoon about to sell his business; the thieves, some of who are already at the bank, will funnel the sale money into this fake account and transfer it out of the country.

Louise originally refuses to get involved, but the man who approaches her (Laurence Fox) has blackmail on her -- she and someone else once stole 3000 pounds, plus she has a daughter, Erica, that the thieves can use as a way to threaten her. Louise unknowingly becomes involved with a police detective (Toby Stephens) who knows what she's doing and wants her to cooperate with the police.

Suspenseful and nerve-wracking, this is a very exciting drama with a few great twists along the way. It's not the warmest production you'll ever see -- Louise isn't a particularly likable character, though she can sure think on her feet; Laurence Fox of "Inspector Lewis" fame plays an awful human being -- well, nobody is very nice, except perhaps Stephens, but words like tough and no-nonsense fit him better.

"Wired" held my interest throughout because one really doesn't know who is working with whom, or what's going to happen. It holds one's attention right until the very end.
